1/2 big cucumber
300 grams of greek yoghurt
4 cloves of garlic
3 tablespoons of freshly chopped mint
Making Tzatziki with Mint
Peel the cucumber and cut it in half, so that you can spoon out the seeds. Discard both the seeds and the peel, the first holds all the water and the second a bitter taste. Cut the cucumber into small pieces and add to a serving bowl. Press the garlic through a garlic press and chop the mint. Add both to the cucumber. Add the yoghurt and give it a good stir. Season with salt and pepper. There is no right amount here, add a little at a time, stir and taste, and you decide when enough is enough.
Serve with pita bread and kebab or garlic bread. Anything barbecued!
