Tzatziki – Minty Yogurt & Cucumber Dip
This classic Greek marriage of yogurt and cucumber is delicious as a dip, as an accompaniment to salads and burgers or on warm pitta bread as a snack.
Peel, de-seed and finely dice the cucumber. Place into a sieve over a bowl and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Leave for 30 minutes. Dab the cucumber with kitchen paper to absorb any excess liquid then place into a bowl. Add the yogurt, mint, a good grind of pepper and the lemon juice, stir. Check the seasoning, add salt if needed. Drizzle over the olive oil and serve.
Dip fingers of carrot and celery in or spread on toasted pitta breads to enjoy.Print
