A tasty, juicy summer (and winter, why not?) sauce, tzatziki is a delicious and uber-easy-to0make alternative if you want to eat something healthy along with your meat or vegetables.
What you’ll need:
- Greek strained yogurt (2 cups) – I use Total 0%
- A teaspoon of balsamico
- 1 small garlic clove (shredded)
- Quarter of a cucumber
- A pinch of dill (optional)
- Olive oil (1 teaspoon)
- Salt (half a teaspoon)
Put the yogurt in a big bowl.
Peel off the cucumber and cut it in the middle (so that you will have two long pieces, where you can see the seeds). Take a small spoon and take away the seeds. Now you should only have the flesh of the cucumber. Cut the cucumber in very small pieces.
Mix the garlic and cucumber with the yogurt.
Add the vinegar, olive oil, dill and salt and stir well.
Put the mix in the fridge for half an hour. Serve cold.
Tzatziki is a perfect dip, or as a sauce for gyros.
