Tzatziki


My husband and I made this recipe together this weekend and liked it so much we ate it two nights in a row!  It goes great either with pita chips, or as a sauce for another one of our favourites, chicken souvlaki. 
Ingredients
- 1 cucumber
- 1 cup plain greek yogurt
- 4 tbsp fresh dill
- 5 garlic cloves
- 3 tbsp olive oil

Directions

Peel cucumber and cut into quarters.  Cut each piece into quarters again, and run through a food processor.

Strain cucumber mixture through a cheesecloth until only pulp remains.   It is important to strain as much juice as absolute possible out of the cucumber to ensure the tzatziki is the right consistency.


Put pulp back in food processor.

Add yogurt to food processor and blend.  Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth.

Transfer to a bowl or jar and let rest in fridge for at least an hour before serving. 



Enjoy!
