As featured in yesterday's post, I made a meatloaf served with a side of tzatzki sauce. I had never made tzatzki, and instead just bought it from the store. For some reason I thought it was hard to make, but this was actually really easy! You don't need to make the meatloaf just to have the tzatzki either - try it as a veggie dip, with pita chips, or even on a burger!
- 3 cups of greek yogurt
- 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 2 medium cucumbers
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tbsp chopped dill
- 1/2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt for cucumbers
- salt and pepper to taste
1. Peel and seed the cucumber, then slice the cucumber and put in colander. Sprinkle 1 tsp of salt of the cucumber to draw out the water. Let stand for 30 minutes. Drain well and dry/get rid of excess water with a paper towel.
2. Finely chop cucumber, and combine with dill, garlic, lemon juice, and pepper. If you have a food processor this is a good time to use it.
3. Stir cucumbers into yogurt and salt and pepper further to taste. Refrigerate for a few hours before serving to let the flavors combine.
