I love tzatziki sauce! It's delicious with so many things. We had it the other day with roasted potatoes. It's actually quite simple to make and worth it if you have the time.
What you'll need
750 ml Plain yogurt or plain Greek yogurt
1 Large cucumber
2 Cloves garlic, finely chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp Dill
Salt to taste
1. (Skip step one if using Greek yogurt). If using plain yogurt, start by straining the yogurt. Line a strainer with paper towel then add half the yogurt. Let stand for 15 minutes. Repeat with remaining yogurt. Place in a large bowl.
2. You can peal the cucumber if you prefer, but that's where all the vitamins are, so I like to keep it on. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with a spoon. Shred. Dry the cucumber with a paper towel to get out as much of the moisture as possible. Add to the yogurt.
3. Add the garlic, lemon juice and dill. Mix and salt to taste.
