Use a condiment, dip or dressing to add a Greek touch to dishes
Tzatziki sauce is a yogurt/cucumber sauce used in Greek cooking, usually on meats, gyros, souvlaki. It can also be used as a dip for fresh vegetables or even diluted and used as a salad dressing.

It has a creamy clean garlicky taste and works well with spicy foods. I have used it on a spicy rice with peppers stuffed in tortilla (although traditionally pitas are the bread of choice). I also what was left over with a little bit of milk and used it on a salad.

    Scoop seeds out of cucumber with a spoon (the original recipe advises to peel, but I prefer unpeeled).

    Grate the cucumber and mince the garlic.

    Generously saturate with salt I used about 25 shakes to and let set for 10 minutes to draw out the moisture and keeps it from becoming soggy.
