Classic Tzatziki sauce is hard to pass up and it’s way easy to make. We use it as a creamy salad dressing, on top of our homemade falafel or just dipping for a delicious fresh pita bread. Great way to use the cucumbers!
2 cups organic whole milk yogurt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 med. cucumber, peeled and shredded on a box grater, about 1 cup
2 T Lemon juice
1-2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, chopped mint is a nice addition as well
1 med. garlic clove, finely diced or smashed to a paste
Place yogurt in a medium bowl. Grate cucumber onto a plate. Squeeze out all juices from cucumber (reserve) and add shredded cucumber to yogurt. Combine remaining ingredients in bowl and blend thoroughly. If the consistency is too thick, stir in a little cucumber water. Ideally, place in refrigerator for a couple hours to let flavors blend. But, it’s so good, it’s hard to wait!
