Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki Sauce (Cucumber Yogurt Sauce)

Ingredients

1 cup non-fat, plain, Greek yogurt
1/2 large hothouse or english cucumber (or 1 medium garden cucumber)
1/4 tsp (Kosher) Salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon Juice 1 Garlic Cloves, Finely Minced
1 tsp Minced Fresh Dill Weed (no stalks)
1 tsp Minced Fresh Mint Leaves

Directions

Peel cucumber(s). Cut in half lengthwise. If not English/hothouse, use a small spoon to scrape out and discard seeds. Chop finely.
Put yogurt in a large bowl. Add it to a small bowl and whisk in lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, dill & mint, 1/4 tsp. Kosher salt, and pepper. Mix together well. Mix well.
This can be served immediately; however, it is traditionally served after having chilled well and allowing a few hours for the flavors to blend. Dip in or stuff veggies or top chicken or other proteins. Be creative and enjoy!
