A refreshing yogurt, cucumber
and garlic traditional dip.
You will need
2 large cucumbers, peeled
600ml Greek yogurt
5 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1.Grate the cucumbers using a coarse grater into a colander. Place a bowl underneath the colander and leave overnight to drain. It is essential to remove all the juices or the dip will be watery and separate. If you are in a hurry then place grated mixture in a kitchen cloth, pulling up the corners to make a tight bundle. Squeeze the bundle very hard to extract all the moisture.
2. Put grated cucumber in a mixing bowl and stir in yogurt, crushed garlic, dill, olive oil and salt and pepper. Cover bowl with cling film and chill for 3 hours for the flavours to blend. The tzatziki can be left in the refrigerator for a maximum of two days before being used. Just before serving, stir.
3.To serve, place three or four tbsp on a small plate or bowl.
Please make a comment on this recipe or make a suggestion -
Suggestion:I always place
the yogurt in a muslin bag and leave it to drain for at least two hours, in
addition to draining the cucumber. It is a very favorite recipe which I
often use to accompany spanakopitta.
Suggestion: Hi, I like to add
some fresh spearmint and juice of half a lemon.
Suggestion:Seemingly the mot simple recipe for this wonderful sauce if you can
call it that thank you ....
