Tzatziki is a Greek meze (appetizer), also used as a sauce for souvlaki and gyros. It is usually made with strained yogurt. This is my version of tzatziki. It is fast and packs a big punch of flavor.
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 small seedless cucumber, peeled and grated
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 sprigs fresh dill, finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- juice of half a lemon
- salt, freshly ground black pepper to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the flavors to blend. Serve as a dipping sauce with fresh veggies or pita wedges.
