This week’s recipe is a very easy one.¬† It’s healthy, too!¬† We have a Tzatziki sauce recipe coming to you, straight from Greece. This is a great thing to either have as a light snack with pita bread or a¬† garnish for your gyro.

Tzatziki Sauce

7 oz Greek Yogurt
2 medium sized cucumbers – seeds removed, then chopped into small pieces
1 small bunch dill – finely chopped
2 cloves garlic – minced
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice of one lemon
Pinch of coriander
Pinch of ground cumin
Salt and pepper to taste

(Some prefer their Tzatziki sauce to also have mint. If you’re one of these folks, just add 1 tsp – finely chopped)

Place grated cucumber in a paper towel. Squeeze out all moisture.  Combine all ingredients except the yogurt in a food processor and process until cucumbers are finely chopped.  Stir pureed mixture in with yogurt,  add salt and pepper to taste. Cover and chill for at least two hours.  Serve with pita bread, your favorite wrap or a gyro.
