Tzaziki sauce is from an island; Greek island of Paros and it is best served cold. This sauce is all you want to try today, it’s easy to make, we love it and hope y’all love it.
Tzaziki sauce is a creamy and very versatile sauce, it’s prepared with cucumber, yogurt, garlic, and other ingredients. It is very simple and doesn’t require any cooking. This sauce goes well with many Mediterranean dishes or as a dip.
I used fat-free Greek yogurt but you can use fat full greek yogurt so you choose whichever you like. I have other sauce or dip on the blog, please check them out, all these recipes are very simple to replicate.
You might want to try;
- 1 Cup Plain Greek yogurt
- 1 Cucumber (Peeled, seeded, grated, and squeezed)
- 1 Teaspoon Lemon juice
- 1 Teaspoon Dill
- 1 Garlic (minced); use more if you desire
- 1 Tablespoon Olive oil (or your choice)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Peel the cucumber, use a small spoon to scoop out the seed, chop into a food processor or blender season with salt then pulse/grate, you can as well dice with a knife, I diced mine.
English cucumber is also good for this recipe, if you're using an English cucumber you don't need to scoop.
Pour into a muslin cloth, cheesecloth, or clean kitchen towel and squeeze out the liquid. Make sure you don’t skip this part, I got about half a cup of liquid. You can also use your fist just scoop some and make sure you scoop out all the liquid as much as possible. You don't want your sauce watery.
Add the cucumber and the rest of the ingredients, season with salt and pepper
Refrigerate, you can serve over chicken, wrap, kebabs, gyro, sandwich, pita and so many more. If you wish drizzle some oil over the sauce.
