Tzatziki, Tsaziki, Tζατζίκι – Cacık3 comments Jun 7th, 2010 | By Tobias | Category: Dips, Recipes
The weather is getting warmer and it is time to come up with some light dishes. Besides that I discovered that I had left out one of the Greek classics. The Tzaziki. Many of you will say now “well that just sounds like the Turkish Cacik!” And I would agree.
This Yogurt sauce is the perfect dip but also is perfect for barbecue. It also goes well with fried food like calamari.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
- a cup of Greek yogurt (Olympos)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- half a cucumber
- some dill
- some olive oil
- Salt an pepper
Peel the cucumber, then remove the soft inside with a spoon. Shred the cucumber into a bowl.
Chop up the garlic then crush ist with the flat side of a big kitchen knife. Use some sea salt to turn it into a paste while crushing it.Put it into a bowl and bix it with olive oil and some pepper.
Now add the chopped dill and the yogurt. Now mix this sauce with the cucumber.
Fridge and serve chilled.
