Greek tzatziki is a cool and refreshing yogurt and cucumber dip that’s really simple to make. A perfect summer afternoon snack!
2 cups greek style yogurt (or regular yogurt strained)
1 large cucumber
2 cloves garlic (more if you’re a garlic lover)
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Peel the cucumber, slice in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Chop into small pieces with a knife or use a grater or food processor. Squeeze out excess water and transfer to a bowl. Mince the garlic and add to the cucumber. Stir in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix with yogurt and let sit in the fridge for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to blend. You can also add mint, parsley, or dill. Serve with pita bread, vegetable dippers, or as a sauce for grilled meat.
