How good is Turkish food! Following the hummus from before, we decided to give it ago and try recreate another of our favourite dips at home. Here is Tzatziki - a very simple, quick and easy cucumber dip and great served on pita or Turkish bread, and or with grilled meats.
I based this recipe from Donna Hay's online recipe with a few additions. You can adjust the ratios according to your taste. So the tip is to try as you go. I've tagged this post as “sugar free” as you can substitute honey with about 2 to 3g of Stevia. But the sweetness does balance out the flavour in this dish.
2 cups thick Greek natural yoghurt
1 Lebanese cucumber, grated
2 tablespoons chopped mint leaves
1 clove garlic, crushed/grated
1/2 tablespoon honey (optional)
1 lemon/lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and cracked pepper
Other optional flavours
Place the yoghurt, cucumber, mint, garlic, honey, oil, juice, salt and pepper in a bowl and stir to combine. Serve.
Yep that simple! Enjoy!
