GREEK TZATZIKI

(Athens and the Acropolis -Pic by www.trekearth.com)

"Tzatziki" is a light and tasty Greek/Mediterranean cucumber and yoghurt dip which is often served with " SOUVLAKI" and "PITA". It is a very fresh and pleasant apetizer sauce. When eating it you feel like if you were on holiday in beautiful Greece!...

Ingredients:
500g Plain strained yoghurt or Greek-style yoghurt
3/4 Of a biggish cucumber
3 Cloves garlic, crushed
5 Tbs Virgin olive oil
1 Tsp White vinegar
A pinch of cumin powder
A pinch of paprika powder
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Method:
1. Peel and grate the cucumber.

2. Squeeze the cucumber in order to let go as much water as possible.
3. Mix all ingredients together.
4. Refregerate for about an our in order to let the flavors mingle and develop.

Remarks:
If you wish to leave the skin on the cucumber, that's also ok.

Don't grate the cucumber too thinly. You should use the medium grating disk if you use a mixer.

Serving suggestions:
Serve this dip with "GYROS", "SOUVLAKI", "PITA" bread, just simply as a dip or with fish, fried potatoes and any salad.

    Did you know, that nearly all of us pay too much for their car insurance? That we are leaving a lot of money on the table by failing to compare properly the rates of all those different insurance companies?
