Tzatziki

Tzatziki is a refreshing sauce made with cool cucumbers, creamy Greek yogurt, and zingy lemon. It’s the perfect condiment for just about everything, especially grilled meats.

We’ve also used tzatziki as a dip to serve with pita triangles, a salad dressing for lettuce leaves, or as a cooling side course with spicy foods like curry.

You can even top Fried Green Tomatoes with this delicious dip.

Ingredients
2 medium-size cucumbers
2 cups plain whole milk Greek yogurt
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons minced fresh dill
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
Instructions

Peel the cucumbers and slice in half lengthwise. With a spoon, scoop out the seeds and discard. Grate the cucumber coarsely and place in a medium-size bowl. Stir in yogurt, garlic, dill, lemon juice, and salt. Chill for at least 30 minutes and serve.
