My easiest ever tzatziki, because chip and dip doesn't need to be hard.
Sometimes you want something easy, quick and low effort. Be it for a snack, maybe you've decided to bring something to a party or maybe you're hosting yourself.
Regardless, my easy Tzatziki is a fresh and simple dip, perfect with some pitta to start off a meal or as a delicious topper for lamb burgers, gyros or kebabs. A delicious way to transport you back to lazy holidays in the med, with chip, dip and a cold beer.
I always get asked for this recipe, and it really is so simple..
Prep Time : 15 mins
Serves : 5
Difficulty : Easy
1 500gr tub of Greek yoghurt
2 tablespoons dried mint
1 - Grate the cucumber on the fine grater then drain off as much of the water as possible.
2 - Place yoghurt into the bowl and then add the cucumber, a pinch of salt and mint. Mix well.
3 - Set aside and before serving drizzle some olive oil on top and a sprinkling of mint.
Great with Warm pitta breads and some lemon.
With a kick - Add half a grated chilli.
With some spice - Add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Either way - scoff the whole thing up!!
