Greek-Style Yogurt (Tzatziki)

If you’re looking for a versatile yogurt, check out this recipe for Tzatziki, a Greek dish that can be eaten as a standalone yogurt or a dipping sauce. The recipe calls for Persian cucumber, but if you can’t find one, a regular cucumber will do the job. The dish works great with pita – or any bread of your choice. It also can be matched with grilled veggies, stuffed grape leaves, or as a fresh vegetable dip.

1 cup cubed Persian cucumber
1 to 2 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp dried mint (or dill)
1/4 cup water
