Tzatziki is a mezze widely cooked in Greece, which will perfectly accompany your appetizers but also your vegetables, toast and meat dishes!
- 2 bowls
Wash the cucumber very well. Grate the cucumber and add salt. Leave 15 min with salt and “squeeze” by removing the cucumber juice.
Otherwise, you can cut the cucumber in 2 by removing the central seeds and so you avoid the cucumber juice. Grate the cucumber.
Slice the garlic cloves.
Add in a bowl the folowing: greek yogurt, cucumber and garlic. If you used the 2nd way to cut the cucumber, you will need to salt a little. In some areas, grated carrot is added.
If you do not eat right away, cover with a film and put in the fridge.
Depending on your tastes, you can either add more cucumber or yogurt or garlic. In Greece, tzatziki is a bit strong.
