Easy Tzatziki 

Basic tzatziki proportions are easy to follow. You can add or subtract any of the ingredients to suit you own taste.

1 cup Greek yogurt

1 tbsp. lemon juice

1 clove crushed garlic

1 tbsp. fresh dill

1 English cucumber, grated

Salt and pepper to taste

Mix together well and allow to stand for a few hours to blend flavours.

I recommend using Greek yogurt because it is thick. If you use regular yogurt, you will need to strain it through cheesecloth – messy and time consuming. Some people also add a tablespoon of mint. 

If you use regular cucumber, you should seed it and draw the water out by sprinkling it with a tablespoon of salt and leaving it sit for 30 minutes.
