Tzatziki is a Greek yogurt sauce made with cucumber and garlic. Tzatziki is most commonly known as the sauce on Gyros but is great for lots of other things. It’s a wonderful appetizer with grilled pita and goes well with roasted or grilled chicken or lamb.
- 2 cups yogurt
- 1 cucumber
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Start by washing the cucumber and grating it skin and all. You can use a food processor or a hand grater with large holes. Squeeze the grated cucumber with your hands to drain off the excess water.
- Mix the cucumber, yogurt, garlic powder, olive oil, and lemon juice together. Serve cold.
