ROSIE BELLE FARM TZAZIKI SAUCE
Tzaziki Sauce is such a versatile sauce....we use a farm made yogurt base. Tzaziki makes a great dip, sandwich spread, or a savory, tangy topping!
1 cup of Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh mint
2 Teaspoons chopped garlic
Splash of olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
First, peel the cucumber and then cut it in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds, Cut the cucumber into smaller pieces and put in a strainer over the sink. Sprinkle about two teaspoons or so of salt on the cucumber and let it drain for about 15 minutes. Cucumbers contain a lot of water, which will make the tzaziki sauce too "liquidy," so using salt to draw out the water makes for a thicker sauce. After the fifteen minutes is up, finely dice the cucumber. I use a food processor for this and then squeeze out any extra liquid before adding the cucumber to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well and chill before serving.
