Tzatziki Sauce

Day 17 BM #56 - 

For the last day of posting these simple and delightful condiments, check out this yogurt sauce(Raitha) which the Greeks serve with Gyro Sandwiches (Recipe soon).

To me Raitha is an accompaniment with Pulao, Biryani and the like or even eaten as such. But this sauce apparently goes with Sandwiches. My older one certified that it sure tastes awesome with the Gyro sandwiches. So here we go..

Recipe Inspiration here
Ingredients - 

Greek Yogurt 1 cup
Cucumber, peeled and finely chopped 1 cup
Salt and Pepper as needed
Lime/Lemon Juice 2 tsp
Dill and Mint finely chopped 1 teaspoon each (I used the dried herbs)
Garlic, grated 1/2 tsp (I didn't add)

Tzatziki Sauce

Method Of Preparation -

Salt the cucumbers and let them rest for a few minutes. Squeeze out the water from the cucumbers.

In a different bowl, whisk the yogurt, pepper, lime juice, dill, mint and garlic.

Add in the cucumbers and refrigerate for an hour for the flavors to blend in.

The Greeks serve it with Gyro Sandwiches.
