A true Mediterranean favorite is the famous tzatziki sauce; you know, the sauce you get on a gyro?! This is it!! This sauce is a protein rich source with high quality ingredients. It pairs nicely with warm pita or raw veggies for a snack, on a gyro, or alongside falafel.
1 small English cucumber, peeled and sliced
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp White vinegar
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
2 cups Plain Greek yogurt, nonfat
1 tsp Ground black pepper
After peeling and slicing the cucumber, place in a food processor. Pulse until cucumber is grated and somewhat smooth. Remove from food processor onto a double folded, large paper towel or kitchen towel. Wrap the grated cucumber in the towel and squeeze until all the water is drained from the cucumber.
Place cucumber in a large bowl and combine with rest of ingredients. Mix until all are combined.
This will keep well in the fridge for 6-7 days. Serve alongside warm pita, raw veggies, falafel, or on a gyro.
Serving Size: About 1/4 cup
