D-I-Y Tzatziki

Tzatziki is just one of those fridge staples – spread, dip, dollop, spoon. Yum!

  • Grate the cucumber onto a clean towel or some paper towel. Allow any excess liquid to drain out. Add your drained cucumber to some yoghurt.
  • Peel and grate the garlic. If you prefer cooked garlic, sauté the garlic in a pan until fragrant – otherwise add the grated garlic as is.
  • Season the tzatziki with salt, pepper, lemon juice and olive oil. Add some chopped mint too, if mint is your thing.

CHEF’S TIP: 

It's important to drain the liquid from the cucumber as any liquid will make the tzatziki watery and not so lekker – leading to expiration earlier than usual.
