Cucumber Tzatziki Sauce

Cucumber Tzatziki Sauce is the perfect combination of ingredients tasted fantastic! The recipe is easy and it is delicious with lamb.

1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely grated
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
3 mint leaves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a small mixing bowl, combine the ingredients, stirring until well-blended and smooth.

Top with dill.


Tip: Many recipes say that you dice or chop the cucumber – this is not the correct way. I actually finely grate mine, I then give it a gently squeeze, then place it in a paper towel in a sieve and allow to strain overnight in the fridge . Also, I love the bold, earthy flavor of dried herbs in this recipe, but you can use fresh versions of rosemary and marjoram, too. Since dried herbs are stronger, use 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs as a substitute for 1 teaspoon of dried.
