Greek Tzatziki

Mama Cheater Bite recently came back from a trip to the Mediterranean, and Greece was one of the fabulous stops.  Upon her arrival back to the states, she was in the mood for Greek inspired cuisine, so one afternoon we cooked up some garlicky and delicious homemade tzatziki.  It’s rather easy to make; a healthy snacking option and condiment to many different dishes.

You will need:
1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt, drained
1/2 seedless cucumber, cut in small cubes
1/2 medium sweet onion, grated
3 cloves garlic, zested/grated
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper
3 tablespoons fresh dill

Place the yogurt in a sieve over a bowl in the fridge for about 2 hours.  This drains the excess liquid and makes the tzatziki thicker.  Cut your cucumber, being sure that there are no seeds.  Toss the cucumber into the yogurt.  Grate in your onion and garlic.  Drizzle in olive oil and season with salt, pepper and dill.  Stir well and taste.  Adjust oil and seasonings to your desired thickness and flavor.

Keeps for at least 5 days or so, covered in the fridge.  It’s great on a pita chip or some veggies.  Goes wonderfully with pork, chicken, lamb and really anything that can use some “sauce.”  Adds a fabulous flavor!!
