RECIPE: Tzatziki

Level of Difficulty: EASY

· 2 cups plain Greek style yogurt (I use Fage 2%)

· ½ cucumber

· 1 TB salt

· 1 TB minced garlic

· 3 TB fresh minced mint
Grate the cucumber using the big side of a box-grater. Add the salt to the cucumber and allow to sit for 20 minutes, then strain all of the liquid out and discard the liquid.

Stir together the cucumber pulp with the garlic, very finely minced mint, and the yogurt. This is a super delicious tzatziki. It can be used as a dip (my preference) or actually can be served warm as a sauce over fish.
