Gourmet moment: Tzatziki dip

October 7, 2014

Here’s to the Tuesday and another Blogtober post! I’m so proud of myself for sticking to everyday posting, esp. since I’ve been dealing with so much for the past few weeks and for the past week we’ve experienced flu, ear infection, eye infection and fractured collar bone ( my daughter )… I don’t wanna start sounding too negative, but I just couldn’t believe that so much bad luck can happen in such a short amount of time. Blogging every day and reading your comments makes me very happy and keeps my mind focused on the good “stuff” ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I’m bringing you a recipe for one of my favourite dips which is SO easy to make at home and it can be also prepared and served in many different ways but here’s how I usually do it.

You’ll need:

*2 medium cucumbers *clove of garlic *salt, pepper *fresh dill *300 grams of Turkish yoghurt *teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil *half to one teaspoon of squeezed lemon juice

Here’s how you should proceed:

Grate two cucumbers ( with the skin on ) into a bowl in which you’ll serve this dip. Add about 300 grams of Turkish yoghurt to the same bowl. Squeeze about half a teaspoon of lemon juice, add pinch of salt, pepper and chopped fresh dill into the bowl. Mix it all together with a spoon ( fork ) and in the end add teaspoon of olive oil in circular motion.

Tzatziki is amazing when for instance served with Greek, Turkish or Nepalese food/ meals. I have served my Tzatziki dip with falafel, dolmades and feta cheese pie.

Buon apetit! ๐Ÿ™‚

    usput je li to ja vidim japrak na tanjuru? ili jalam japrak? Tek sam ga u Hercegovini naučila praviti, kod nas se u Dalmaciji slabo pravi (barem u Splitu).

    Stalno pravim ovakve ‘zdrave’ umake u blenderu, probala sam nešto skroz slično sa krastavcem, a danas sam pomješala papriku, česnjak, maslinovo ulje i kozji sir- fantazija je ispalo! (možda me baš ovaj tvoj post posjetio na to)….

    Our cucumbers in America look so different from these. Must be all the genetically modified food over here. Can’t wait to try the recipe!
