Tzatziki!

Summer means cool, fresh and simple meals. And like any warm blooded woman in the world, I love BBQ meats! A go-to dinner in our house is a simple salad with BBQ meat and tzatziki. Here is our easy recipe for the fastest Greek tzatziki that pairs well with BBQ’d pork or chicken.

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup of thick Greek yogurt
  • 3 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup of grated cucumber
  • 1 tsp each of sea salt and coarse ground pepper
  • a squirt of fresh lemon juice to taste
  • 3 paper towels (or a clean tea towel)
  1. Grate the cucumber straight on top of the 3 layers of paper towel, or a clean tea towel.
