Making tzatziki from scratch
The first thing is to prepare the cucumber and garlic.
Wash and peel the cucumber and then use the coarse side of your grater to grate the cucumber. Then place the grated cucumber in some cheesecloth or in a nut milk bag and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. You don’t want your dip too watery.
Then crush the garlic. You can either do this in a garlic crusher if you have one or grate the garlic using the fine side of your grater.
Now that the prep work is done all that needs to be done is to add the remaining ingredients and mix together. Season with salt and pepper to your liking and serve.
To let the flavors marry together it’s best to chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours, it tastes even better the next day! But if you want to eat it right away it’s still deliciously good!
