Do you buy Tzatziki sauce at the supermarket? Please don't! It is the easiest, most refreshing sauce you can make and ideal for the summer season. We've got a foolproof recipe for you, and it only takes 10 minutes (if you are slow) to make it...
It makes for a very healthy appetizer spread on a rusk or a piece of bread.
Here is the recipe which serves 4-6 people:
1 medium size English cucumber (peeled and grated)
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Fage, 2% Plain Yogurt (17.7Oz)
2 cloves of minced garlic
3 tablespoons of fresh chopped dill
1/4 cup Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Strain the grated cucumber to remove as much water as possible. If there is much water left in the grated cucumber the sauce will get very liquid and messy, not to mention the flavor will be diluted.
Add the strained grated cucumber in the yogurt and combine the garlic, salt and dill while stirring continuously to mix the flavors.
If you love the aroma in sauces we recommend you up the quantity of chopped dill.
Last but not least start adding the Extra Virgin Olive Oil until the consistency of the Tzatziki sauce gets to a good consistency (it should NOT be dripping).
Top with a hint of olive oil and decorate the sauce with some dill or Kalamata olives.
It is now ready to serve and enjoy!
