The other day, I saw that in the supermarket, next to the hummus (chickpea pate), I realized that they had released a new product, Greek Tzatziki, a yogurt and cucumber sauce. I bought it to taste it and it was so good that I decided I had to prepare it myself.
It is a very quick and easy recipe to prepare, with ingredients that we easily have at home or that we can get without difficulty. In addition, it does not need cooking, mixer, or anything, so we hardly stain, which is another point in favor. Ah! And for fans of kitchen robots, we also have a recipe for Greek tzatziki in Thermomix.
We started peeling the cucumber and washing it well. Then, with a fine grater, we grate it until there is a kind of cucumber puree. We salt it lightly and leave it in a colander or in a strainer to release the water.
On the other hand, in a bowl, mix the yogurt, the oil, the minced garlic clove, the juice of 1/2 lemon (or a little less), the minced mint (it can be peppermint) and a pinch of salt and pepper. . You can also use normal yogurts draining the serum well that they have in a strainer, although the result is not so creamy.
By last, add the cucumber well drained, stir gently and serve cold. It can be served immediately, but Greek Tzatziki is best rested for a couple of hours in the fridge, so it is colder and a little more dense.
With what to accompany the Greek tzatziki
We can accompany this greek tzatziki recipe with all kinds of things to dip: carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, endives … and of course also naan bread, dürum or fajita tortillas.
