As well as being a great, light dip, tzatziki is also awesome when served alongside dishes with mint and cumin inside as the tastes really go well together. This recipe is cheap, fast, and uses ingredients which a lot of people would usually have in their house.
– 250g natural yoghurt (or 2 small pots) (If you have Turkish or Greek yoghurt available even better, although this will change the calorie count).
– 1 clove garlic
– Half a cucumber
– 1 tbsp Olive oil
- Start by peeling the cucumber, cutting it in half lengthways and scraping out the seeds in the middle using a teaspoon. Chop finely and transfer to a suitable bowl.
- Mince the garlic and add to the bowl. Add in the yoghurt, the olive oil, sprinkle in some salt and papper and mix well.
- …And there you go 🙂 Serve with bread, meats like lamb, vegetables, in sandwiches, salmon, etc…
