2 cup Plain Greek yogurt - cold
2 - 3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice or 1/2 lemon, juiced
3 -4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
Salt to taste or 1/4 teaspoon
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste or 1/8 teaspoon
For a Traditional flavor (Tzatziki Sauce) add grated cucumbers to the mix and a bit of mint instead of dill. I personnel love the flavor dill brings to this sauce.
Cucumber Prep - 1/2 English cucumber or 3 mini cucumber, grated using the larger hole section of a box grater. Add to a bowl and sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Lightly stir and set to the side while you prep the ingredients listed above.
Once your yogurt sauce is ready, use a cheesecloth, your hand or a strainer to squeeze out as much juice as you can from the cucumber. Discard the juice and add the cucumber to your yogurt mix. Stir everything together. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour or over night.
If you do not have a grater you can chop your cucumber Julienne style.
