Easy Tzatziki

I love being able to use my own blog as my online cookbook.  This weekend, Ira and I were craving Mediterranean, so we decided make my lazy lamb kaboob, substituting pork and beef for the lamb which I didn’t have.  I realized, after we started cooking, I never posted a Tzatziki recipe.  I just can’t have kabob without Tzatziki.  So here is a quick easy recipe, which gives a light refreshingly tart accent to any spiced meat!  Enjoy.  Tzatziki Sauce makes about 2 cups

  • 2 cups Greek strained yogurt
  • 1/2 cucumber, seeded and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tsp hot sauce
  • 1-2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper

Prep cucumber, remove seeds and chop.  I usually leave the skin of the cucumber on.  Using a food processor, blend the yogurt, cucumber, garlic, hot sauce, lemon juice and zest until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, and transfer to a bowl. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
