How to make tzatziki sauce

This tzatziki bath is very easy to make and will keep about 5 days in the fridge. I have done this with regular and Greek yogurt and my personal preference is regular plain yogurt.

  1. Peel, sow and grind a large cucumber and set aside. I use a cheese grater.
  2. Combine yogurt, olive oil, minced garlic clove (more or less depending on how strong you want it to be), lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Gently stir in the grated cucumber at the end.
  3. Let the flavors mix in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving.

The bright and strong flavor of tzatziki stands out when served cold!
