RECIPE | Greek Tzatziki Sauce

Yields1 Serving

I N G R E D I E N T S //
 8 fl oz plain greek yogurt (I like to use Siggi's brand)
 ½ English cucumber, diced small and seeded
 ½ tsp sea salt (this amount is just for the cucumbers)
 3 fresh radishes, grated fine
 ½ tsp garlic, grated fine
 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
 1 tsp sea salt to taste
 ½ tbsp olive oil
 ¼ tsp fresh cracked pepper

D I R E C T I O N S //
1

Wash the English cucumber, cut in half and then slice one of those halves lengthwise. Now you will need to scoop the seeds out of the middle. I used a melon baller for this part and it worked really well!
Now you will dice up the cucumber into very small pieces. Place them all in a strainer over a bowl and season with 1/2 tsp. salt. Leave set for 45 minutes so the salt can extract some of the moisture.

2

Once the cucumbers have set out for 45 minutes, you can place them in a cheesecloth if you have one handy or just use a paper towel to squeeze out as much liquid as you can. You can see here how much liquid I got out!

Next, grate the radishes finely and then squeeze them in the cheesecloth or paper town to remove excess liquid.

4

After all the veggies have all the moisture removed, you will combine the yogurt, lemon juice, dill, garlic, salt, olive oil and pepper in the bowl with the cucumbers and radishes. Then cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before enjoying, though you don't HAVE to do this part. All the flavors get better and better the more time they marinate in the fridge though!
