I love tzatziki! You will see it feature as a side in a lot of my recipes. I almost always have some in the fridge, ready to be added to a salad plate or a sandwich. It's healthy too, but most importantly it's delicious!
It is essentially a cucumber and yoghurt dip, originally hailing from Greece. i sometimes also make Turkish Cacik, which is very similar but also includes dill in the mixture. I sometime also add a bit of fresh mint or chives if I happen to have some in the fridge.
It's great with kebabs, toasted pita bread, crisps and for dipping in veg. It's a great healthy option and packed full of flavour.
Let me know if you try it!
- 1 Clove garlic
- ¼ Cucumber
- 200 g Greek yoghurt
- ¼ tsp Dried mint
- Extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ tsp Sea salt
- Grate the cucumber into a tea towel. Squeeze the tea towel to drain the water from the cucumber. Keep squeezing until as much moisture as possible is removed.
- Finely grate the garlic clove and mix together with the yoghurt, salt, cucumber and dried mint.
- Just before serving, drizzle with some olive oil and get ready to dunk.
