Eva’s Classic Greek Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki is a popular Greek sauce that is often used as a dip with pita bread or enjoyed with various types of meat dishes such as souvlaki and gyros. It is best made with yogurt, but if you prefer not to use yogurt you may substitute it for sour cream. Keep in mind that the yogurt needs to strain for about 8 to 10 hours, so it’s best to begin the preparation the day before you plan to serve it. Some tzatziki recipes call for a bit of chopped dill or mint, but in this video Eva shows us how to prepare her version of this delicious sauce.

1 tub of plain yogurt
2 cloves of garlic crushed
Half a cucumber
1 tablespoon of olive oil
a pinch of salt (or to your taste)
1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice

To begin you need to strain the yogurt. Place a cheese cloth or a few sturdy paper towels on a strainer and place the strainer in a bowl. Scope out the yogurt into the strainer and allow the water to strain for at least 8 to 10 hours in the fridge. Once the yogurt has been strained, discard the excess water and place the yogurt in a medium-sized bowl. Add the crushed garlic to the yogurt. Peel the cucumber, slice it in half, remove the seeds, and shred the cucumber using a cheese grater. Squeeze out any excess water from the cucumber and add it the yogurt mixture. Add the olive oil, salt, and fresh lemon juice. Stir the mixture well. Garnish with an olive or a slice of lemon.

Enjoy!

    a görög tzatziki olyan mint nálunk a lecsó. Ahány tájegység, annyiféleképpen készítik és mégis eredeti. Mert nálunk ugye a rizses, a tojásos, a kolbászos, a szalonnás, a tarhonyás lecsó is lecsó. Amit éppen az ízlésünknek, neveltetésünknek, megszokásunknak megfelelően készítünk. Így tehát előfordulhat Görögországban mentás, kapros, fetás, borecetes, stb. tzatziki, és az összes változat receptje eredetiként kerül át más országba.

  • Dream of acquiring a call, most of the individuals in operation vision.

    It occurred to my friend–or rather, an associate at work Third Avenue Administration, at my pal’s investment
    company. Ten years ago, this affiliate was concerned about
    a proposed offer produced with an organization that
    the firm was spent in. He asked a number of pointed questions together with the management group on a conference call.
    Traders and other professionals were about the the decision. And unknowingly to everybody, so was Buffett.

    The associate was rung up by Buffett and left a voicemail following the call
    finished. At first, he thought it was a prank contact. He later verified it absolutely was indeed the billionaire creator of Berkshire Hathaway who had called
    to compliment him for a few careful work on the firm.
    Lesson learned: You will never know who’s listening or seeing what you
    are doing.

    I wasn’t so unlucky. I needed to spend years attempting to get I to be spoken to by Buffett.
    That has been the requirement when I joined Tv–nab the
    first meeting for the network with him. And in my own quest to do so,
    I discovered a number of things what it takes to get anyone–actually the entire world’s next richest individual–to talk for you.
