Tzatziki Recipe As Made In Greece
Tzatziki is a very creamy, garlic-loaded dip. Very appetizing, refreshing, and super easy to make!
Servings: 1 big bowl
- 850 grams /1 lb + 14 oz full-fat and strained Greek yogurt
- 320 grams / 11.3 oz (2,5 cups) coarsely hand-grated English cucumber
- 2 large (about 15 grams) garlic cloves minced
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
- ⅔ teaspoon salt
- ground pepper
Add the Greek yogurt to a large mixing bowl and work it with a hand whisk to become really smooth and creamy. Making sure there aren't any lumps in it.
Squeeze the grated cucumber with your hands to remove most of its water. Then add to the mixing bowl along with the Greek yogurt.
Add the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl as well and mix very well.
Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving for the garlic to cool down a bit. Or even better overnight. If you like raw garlic you can serve this dip right away, along with some pita bread or rustic artisan bread!
