Recipe: Tzatziki

Prep and cooking time: 20 mins

Serves: 500ml

Ingredients

  • 1⁄2 cucumber, peeled, deseeded, and sliced
  • 400ml plain natural or Greek yoghurt
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely diced or minced
  • 1⁄2 tsp dried mint or 8-10 mint leaves, finely chopped

Method

  1. Slice the cucumber lengthways and remove the seeds by running a teaspoon down the middle. Grate the cucumber on a coarse grater and sprinkle generously with 1⁄2 tsp of salt. Mix and put aside.
  2. Let the cucumber sit for 10mins. Then, squeeze any further liquid out of the cucumber by pressing with the back of a wooden spoon.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the yoghurt, lemon juice, garlic, and mint. Add the drained cucumber to the yoghurt mixture and a little black pepper. Mix well.
