Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki Sauce

Posted 2017-02-26 by Belindafollow
Tzatziki is a delicious cucumber/yoghurt sauce that is served cold. It pairs well with a variety of meats and salads, warm breads or mezze. This recipe is a family favourite but be mindful of the garlic - you can add more or less to suit your tastes.



This sauce was great served with my Zucchini Fries .

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Serves: 6

Ingredients
150 g greek yoghurt
1/2 cucumber deseeded
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs olive oil


Method
  • Grate the cucumber and place cucumber in a sieve over a bowl. Sprinkle over the salt and mix through. Allow it to drain for around an hour, until the water from the cucumber stops dripping.
  • In a bowl, combine the yoghurt, garlic and lemon juice and add the grated cucumber. Mix well to combine.

  • Cover and refrigerate overnight before serving with a drizzle of olive oil.

  • Can be served immediately but it tastes better if left overnight.
    If you would like to modify this recipe you can also include 1 tsp of dried dill or mint.
    If you don't have any lemon juice you can substitute this with white vinegar.
