Homemade Traditional Tzatziki
- 650g or 2.5 cups plain 0% Greek yogurt (I like Oikos or Liberte)
- 1 large English cucumber, peeled and shredded
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp apple cider or red wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
- fresh ground pepper
- 1 tsp himalayan pink salt
- 2 tsp dry oregano
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Shred the cucumber and strain in a strainer or with a cheese cloth for best results. Try to release as much liquid as possible. (Note: if you have the time, you can even sprinkle some salt on the cucumber and set aside in a strainer for 10-30 min to remove even more liquid.)
- Add the yogurt and gently mix it all in together.
- Add in the minced garlic add the oil, vinegar and lemon juice.
- Finally, mix in the oregano, salt, pepper, lemon and mix well.
- Chill for a few hours or overnight and allow the flavours to meld together. (Serve cold)
