TZATZIKI SAUCE

Serves: 12
Preparation time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 large English cucumber, peeled and grated
    ½ teaspoon salt
    2 cups Greek yogurt
    1 teaspoon garlic, minced
    1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
    2 tablespoon lemon juiced
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
    salt and ground black pepper to taste
    1 sprig fresh dill for garnish
    1 pinch cayenne pepper for garnish (if desired)

Preparation

  • Sprinkle grated cucumber with 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl and let stand 10 to 15 minutes to draw out juice.

    Place yogurt into a separate bowl. Dump cucumber and its juice onto a sturdy, dry paper or cloth towel and squeeze as much moisture as possible from the cucumber. Mix cucumber into yogurt. Add garlic, cayenne pepper, and lemon juice; mix thoroughly.

    Stir dill and mint into yogurt-cucumber mixture; season with salt and black pepper. Adjust all seasonings to taste.

    Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 or 4 hours (or overnight). Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with a sprig of dill and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper for color.
