Ingredients

1 32 oz. container plain yogurt (best to NOT use fat free, Greek yogurt would be great)

1 large English cucumber or 2 regular cucumbers

5 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tsp. distilled white vinegar
1 or 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 or 2 squirts fresh lemon juice (optional)
salt


Using a cheesecloth over a bowl, drain the yogurt in the fridge for several hours or over night.


Peel cucumber and squeeze to get as much moisture as you can out. Shred the cucumber, and pat with paper towels lightly to get out more moisture.


Stir strained yogurt, cucumbers, garlic, vinegar and lemon juice (if using) together. Salt to taste. Drizzle with olive oil.


Pairs Well With


Notes

I grew up eating tzatziki. It's great on gyros, burgers, fresh crusty bread...pretty much anything :)
