Authentic Greek: Tzatziki

This authentic Greek Tzatziki recipe is so easy to make. It’s goes with literally everything and is a great way to get the kids eating and dipping healthy! I actually don’t know why I haven’t posted this recipe sooner as so many people ask me for it on a weekly basis!

Ingredients

It takes just 4 very basic ingredients to whip up a round of Tzatziki. To make a decent sized batch, you will need.

1 x cucumber

2 x clove of garlic

4 table spoons of vinegar

500g of Authentic Greek yogurt

Method

Begin by finely grate your garlic and place it in a bowl with the vinegar. Take you cucumber and peel it. Then in a separate bowl, grate the entire cucumber and squeeze it to drain off all the juice. Once you’ve taken off all the water add the cucumber to the garlic and fold in the yogurt. And voila! or as they say in Greece ‘Kai etsi!’

Dress

Because the kids love tzatziki I tend not to make it with salt, however if making for an adult dinner partner, season to flavour with salt. Then drizzle with a healthy helping of Greek extra virgin olive oil. And finish with a topping of olives.

Level Up

Tzatziki is pretty versatile. One of the reasons it’s so great to give to kids is that it’s a healthy condolent for their favourite chips. To level it up and sneak in some more cheeky 5 a day portions try also adding a handful of finely chopped dill and 2 peel and grated carrots.

Once you’ve got your Authentic Greek Tzatziki ready, why not go full fat Greek and mix up a batch of biftekia.

Store

Because of it’s ingredients, stored well Tzatziki will last a while. Put your mix into a glass bowl, cover in clingfilm and store in the fridge. Level the Tztatziki over night before eating it will also allow the flavours to infuse for a softer kick of garlic.
