Lemon Juice
Olive oil

Let’s make Tzatziki Sauce

Let’s start by washing a cucumber. I usually peal half of it with a potato peeler. Leaving one stripe and taking of a stripe of the skin.
Then grab a bowl and a cheese greater. Start shredding the cucumber, then place the shred cucumber into a drainer to loose the water in excess. Place the cucumber back into the bowl and now add the greek yogurt, salt and pepper. On a cutting board mince a garlic clove and add it to the sauce. Cut a lemon in half and add the juice to the bowl. Chop some fresh dill and mint and add it as well with some extra virgin olive oil.

Use this sauce as a dip, or add it to some pita or souvlaki.
Here you can see some of the recipe I used it for :
