I love Greek food and have never been able to get my tzatziki the way I like it - the way it is in restaurants.
I have unlocked the secret...
Since I've cracked this recipe, I've been walking around sweating garlic. You know, when you burp garlic for days...you brush your teeth a trillion times and your sweetie still recoils in horror? Yeah, like that.
It is SO worth it.
Here's the recipe. It's so easy.
1 pint Greek yogurt - yes, it does come in fat free
1 large clove garlic, grated on a microplane (NOT the whole head, you don't want to kill anyone)
1/2 English cucumber, grated with a cheese grater (I prefer English or Persian to plain old cukes with seeds - but they'll do in a pinch)
1 T fresh dill, roughly chopped (or you can skip it you're not big on dill)
Sea salt to taste
Mix it all together and let it marinate in the fridge for a bit, at least an hour.
Eat with grilled chicken, on a Greek salad, on a pita, off the spoon.
