Tzatziki is a Greek yoghurt and cucumber sauce, ideal for hot summer days. As today is one, I was really craving it. It's normally served with gyros or grilled meat. I'm sort of embarrassed to admit that I made a bowl of it a few minutes ago and just ate all of it on its own! This is my take on it, perhaps slightly different from the traditional version. The Greek original calls for seeded cucumbers, but I quite enjoy the seeds, so I just leave them in. Also, I combine yoghurt with sour cream for a slightly richer taste.
2 medium sized cucumbers
200 g/7 oz yoghurt
200 g/7 oz sour cream
1-2 tsp chopped dill (preferably fresh, but dried will also work)
2 cloves garlic
Peel and finely dice the cucumbers, chop the garlic as finely as possible, and combine all the ingredients. Season to taste. Optionally, you could add the juice of half a lemon. Leave in the fridge and serve cool.
