Tsatsiki Sauce

This yogurt-based sauce is traditionally served with Greek gyros (pronounced /YEE-roh/). It is tasty and creamy and can be used as a sauce for all sorts of dishes. The measurements here are just meant to be a guide. Use more seasonings if you like your sauce more flavorful or less if you like a plainer sauce.

6 ounces fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeds removed and shredded
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons finely chopped mint leaves
2 teaspoons finely chopped dill
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
fine sea salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste

medium bowl
chef's knife
cutting board
box grater
measuring spoons
garlic press
lemon juicer

1. Mix yogurt, garlic, cucumber, olive oil, mint, dill and lemon juice. Mix until well combined.
2. Taste. Add salt and pepper and adjust seasonings to your liking.

Yields about 1 cup
