Cucumber-yogurt Dipping Sauce (Tzatziki) This is a classic of the meze table. Tzatziki is usually served alone, to be enjoyed with bread, also is great with veggies, on top of sautes, or on sandwiches.

Recipe Ingredients for Tzatziki

16 ounces fat free plain yogurt
2 cucumbers, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs vinegar
2 tbs mint
2 tbs lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Tzatziki

Combine the yogurt, cucumbers, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a serving bowl. Mix well and refrigerate, covered, for an hour before serving. Serve chilled, garnished with mint leaves. (I like tzakiki that is more like a sauce but for a thicker consistency, drain the yogurt in cheesecloth for an hour beforehand and drain the cucumbers in a strainer.)
