I'm talking about tzatziki, really. And there's nothing secret about it. In fact it's kind of boring and basic. However, it is healthy and very easy to make and it's a great accompaniment to many cooked meats. Actually, now that I think about it, you could probably eat it with the entire Greek Cookbook from A to Z and not get punched in the mouth by two jabs and hook.
The only white sauce that's a mystery to me is the sauce found oozing and dripping out of every donair sold in every donair shop across the nation after 2AM and consumed by every drooling, drunk, uni-student who didn't "pick up" at the bar. We'll talk about the donair meat itself another day. For now, it's a don't ask, don't tell policy.
Whoa... way off topic.
I'm throwing down a recipe for Tzaztiki.
- 750 gr. container of Balkan Yogurt
- 750 gr container of fat free Yogurt
- 1 long english cucumber shredded and then squeezed through a mesh strainer to rid of water
- 3 Tbsp. of pureed garlic in olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. of dried mint
- 2 Tbsp. of dried dill
- 1 Tsp. of sea salt
- 1/4 Tsp. of ground pepper
- 2 Tbsp. of Olive Oil
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and it's done. Eat it right away or leave it in the fridge. It has a long shelf life. At least as long as the best before date on the yogurt.
