Rich with a garlic aftertaste. one of the easiest and best Tzaziki’s…period. I’ve been told my many this is restaurant grade.
When choosing a greek yogurt, I’ve tried a few, Fage was took rigid, I found Oikos Plain to be low in calories, and the perfect consistency. Get two containers if you are making a marinade for Gyros or Souvalki, that will be the perfect amount.
- 2 cucumbers (to make about 1/2 – 3/4 cup grated cucumber after squeezing out juice)
- 1 1/4 cups plain Greek yoghurt
- 2 tsp white wine vinegar (or red wine or apple cider vinegar)
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or more if you want richer)
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Black pepper
- Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise. Use a teaspoon to scrape the watery seeds out. Coarsely grate the cucumber using a box grater. Then wrap in paper towels or a tea towel and squeeze to remove excess liquid.
- Place cucumber in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients then mix to combine. Set aside for at least 20 minutes for the flavours to meld.
