About 10 days ago I was hosting one of the multiple dinner parties. This time I decided to go with the Greek food. Sort of missed it lately. And of course it's not possible to have a Greek dinner without Tzatziki. It is a part of almost any order in a traditional Greek taverna and could be combined with any food, either fish or meat or even just bread. When I make it, I usually make a large amount and it's never too much! The only problem is that it has a lot of garlic in it, so if you plan to kiss someone after eating it... well you better don't!
500gr thick, Greek yogurt (Straggisto type preferably)
1 cucumber (you could remove the skin if you want, I usually keep it to add some color)
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
salt to taste
1. Grate the cucumber on a large grater. Keep all the juices and put it in a medium bowl.
2. Add the yogurt, garlic and dill and season with some salt. So simple!
