This tzatziki sauce brought everything together. I almost drowned my chicken and smothered everything on my plate with it. Then I proceeded to download everything quickly, because everything tasted very good! Did I also get Moroccan recipes for chicken and vegetable skewers? Do you have to ask? Check back soon!

We just returned home from a trip to WA (Seattle area) where my cousin invited us to dinner. He served a Moroccan Mediterranean menu that rocked my Ukrainian taste buds and we fell in love with this tzatziki sauce.

How to make tzatziki sauce:

1. The cucumber must be peeled, cut into fine cubes and strain its juices. I squeezed it very tightly by the fist. You can use a cheese cloth if you like. Getting rid of excess juice is important so that your tzatziki sauce is not watery the next day.

2. Combine the chopped strained cucumber with 2 cups plain Greek yogurt, 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, 4 pressed garlic cloves, 1/3 cup chopped dill, 1/2 teaspoon salt (add more to taste) and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper.

3. Mix everything together and add more salt to taste if necessary. It is best to refrigerate for about 1 hour before serving so that the flavors mix. It tastes even better after refrigerating overnight!
