Tzatziki sauce

This is the sauce that goes along with the Chicken Souvlaki/ Gyros. It took a bit to get used to it, but once I did- I couldn't get enough of it!!

Tzatziki Sauce
Recipe Source: Seemingly Greek

What you'll need:
1 lb. Plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 English cucumber (or a regular once, seeded)
1-2 cloves of garlic
1 T. fresh dill
1 1/2 T Olive Oil
1 T. lemon juice
good dash of salt

What do do:
Place the yogurt into a bowl. Chop or grate the cucumber - I used my little food processor to get it nice and fine. Place the cucumber in a strainer to remove any excess liquid- or you can squeeze it in your hand over the sink. Add the cucumber, minced garlic, chopped dill, olive oil,  lemon juice and salt to the top of the yogurt. With a spatula, fold all the ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Do not stir or beat them together though. Place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

Be sure to enjoy with this Chicken Souvlaki Recipe!
