Step 1

Tabatznik Tzatziki - Step 1

Grate the cucumber into a bowl. You can use a box grate (like the one you have for shredding cheese).

Step 2

Tabatznik Tzatziki - Step 2

Here's the most important step: take the shredded cucumber over a sink. Use a spaghetti strainer or a flour shifter, add the cucumber, and PRESS HARD. Try and squeeze out as much water as you can. Otherwise you end up with cucumber yogurt soup.

Step 3

Tabatznik Tzatziki - Step 3

Mince the garlic, juice the lemon, and chop the dill (one bunch from the supermarket, or about 1/4 cup when chopped). Add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir well. I always like to stir in a bit of Olive Oil at this point, but that is optional.

Step 4

Drizzle with olive oil and crack a little pepper on top. Serve with pita, crackers, or bread sticks - YUM!
