Preparation-- 5 minutes

Cut the two cucumbers in half and remove the seeds. An easy way to remove the seeds is by using a spoon.

Grate the cucumbers on a not too coarse, nor too fine, blade. Put the grated cucumber in a sieve and let it drain for 5 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, finely chop the garlic cloves.

Squeeze most of the liquid out of the cucumber by pressing it against the sieve with a spoon.

Making the tzatziki -- 5 minutes

Mix the Greek yoghurt in a large bowl with the finely chopped garlic, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and the grated cucumber.

Add salt to taste. Tzatziki is delicious served with meat such as beef, pork or lamb or, for example, with a mixed grill or stew. It's great for parties served with homemade bread and used as a dip. Click here to check out our recipe for rosemary bread.
