Recipe: Tzatziki

Photo by Shauna Alexander
Spring is here and it is so nice to sit outside with friends to enjoy food.  This recipe for Tzatziki is simple and refreshing.  I love to dip pita chips into the yogurt sauce, but you could also serve it over lamb.  Serve it with other appetizers or make an entire Greek feast.

From Capital Cooking Cookbook Flavors of the Mediterranean with John Manolatos
1 European Cucumber, diced
1/4 c. Chopped Dill
1/4 c. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4c. Lemon Juice
1/2c. Crumbled Feta
2 1/4 c. Greek Yoghurt
2 t. Sea Salt
6 Cloves Chopped Garlic

Mix ingredients together in a large bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours.  Serve Tzatzki with pita bread.

YUM!  Looks so delish!  Probably much less caloric than the dill dip from Whole Foods made with sour cream that I like to help myself to!  Haha this will make a perfect slimming replacement!
