TzatzikiFrom borinda 9 years ago
- 4 cups fresh, unflavored yogurt shopping list
- 1 medium cucumber, peeled and coarsely grated shopping list
- 4 cloves of garlic, crushed shopping list
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil shopping list
- 1/2 tsp. dried dillweed shopping list
- salt and freshly ground black pepper shopping list
- Additional olive oil to drizzle as garnish shopping list
How to make it
- Place a cheesecloth or paper coffee filter in a colander and pour in the yogurt. Allow the yogurt to drain for several hours. I put it in the refrigerator the night before I make tzatziki.
- Place the grated cucumber in another colander and let that drain for two hours.
- Mix together all of the ingredients except the extra olive oil for garnish, and then chill.
- Serve on individual plates with pita wedges as an appetizer, garnished with a drizzle of olive oil, at each person's seat -OR- in a bowl with pita wedges and/or crudite with drinks.
- NOTE: please be sure to keep this covered well and chilled only 2 or 3 days until used and enjoyed.

That's a 5 hands down! I love this stuff and could eat the entire bowl of it when I make it - so good on sandwiches, and I love to use celery sticks as "dippers". Delish post!! Anyone who's never tried this, really REALLY, you should...krumkake in Chicago Suburbs loved it
