Okay….I screwed up. This was totally supposed to post over a week ago. But save draft is not the same as schedule draft. Le sigh.
So without further ado, here is the recipe for killer homemade tzatziki sauce. We use Ultra Gel in this Tzatziki sauce as it will keep the water in suspension from the cucumber, and it means you don’t have to drain your greek yogurt, so it speeds up making the recipe as well.
2 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon lemon juice (Fresh is best)
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 Tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
3 cups plain greek yogurt
1-3 Tablespoons Ultra Gel
salt and pepper
Combine cucumber pieces and salt in a colander and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Rinse gently and shake dry. Combine cucumber, lemon, garlic and dill in a food processor and pulse until well combined and cucumber pieces are well chopped. Add mixture to greek yogurt and mix well. Allow to sit for five minutes, then whisk in Ultra Gel until just thinner than desired consistency is reached. Let sit for three minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use. Yum!
