Tzatziki

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. The best result is achieved by peeling and de-seeding the cucumber before grating. Hang the grated cucumber in muslin cloth or a tea towel in order to squeeze out all the excess liquid.

  2. Combine the yoghurt, cucumber, lemon juice and garlic. Add a dash of olive oil and sprinkle with paprika.

  3. Perfect for dipping your aubergines in. (See recipe for puréed Aubergine and Garlic Dip.)
