Homemade tzatziki and quote

Post by: andrea     No Comments     On  Apr 29, 2014

My kids love cucumber. And so I often serve it as one of the side dishes on the table and they are always gone. Yes, as parents you’re more than happy if they voluntarily work vitamins inside. Personally, I think cucumbers got so little flavor. Even though I buy biological ones, which seems to are less watery, yet it remains a vegetable with little flavor. So occasionally I adept and try a recipe with cucumber. I make sour cucumbers or a cucumber salad with carrot. And I also make tzatziki with cucumbers. Simple and quick to make and best if you make them in advance for a few hours. Even then, the cucumbers are gone. Only that time they are not all eaten by the kids …

Quote of the week

This week an inspirational quote from Jacques Torres, I as a foodie completely endorse it (unfortunately only my scale doesn’t agree with that):

4Pure: Quote of this week

Recipe: Tzatziki

Ingredients (2 people)

  • 5 sprigs of dill;
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, extra virgin;
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice;
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt;
  • 5 sprigs of dill;
  • 2 cloves garlic, mashed;
  • 250 grams Greek yogurt;
  • Cucumber.


Chop 4 sprigs of dill leaves finely. In a bowl mix the chopped dill, olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, garlic and yogurt. Put in the refrigerator until you need it.

Halve the cucumber. Take with a teaspoon the seeds from the cucumber. Cut the cucumber in half moons. Take the marinated yogurt from the refrigerator and mix the cucumber through. You get the best tzatziki if you leave it in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours Serve garnished with a sprig of dill on top.

Tzatziki is delicious with Greek dishes such as gyros. But it is also delicious as a side dish at the bbq or gourmet.
