Tzatziki

Singlemade: tzatziki

Tzatziki, weird to spell and pronounce, but the taste is anything but weird! Tzatziki is a barbeque-staple and is always on hand in my fridge in the summer. It works great in a salad, in a wrap or as a dip. It just goes with everything!

During summer we eat a lot of tzatziki, but we don’t have garlic on our breath all the time because this recipe doesn’t need it! It does have a secret ingredient. No, no salt this time, but balsamic vinegar. Just a few drops of this Italian black gold will take you straight to Greece ;-). Serve with some fried squid rings and a glass of ouzo to complete the experience. 😉

Instructions
  1. Wash the cucumber and cut in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds by scraping them out with a spoon. Grate the cucumber (fine or coarse, whatever you like) over a bowl. Use your hands to squeeze out as much of moisture out of the grated cucumber as possible. **
  2. Now add the quark, 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise and half a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar to the cucumber. Mix together and add 2 pinches of salt and 8 turns of the peppermill. Stir and season to taste.
Recipe Notes

*Not a fan of quark? Replace half of the quark with soy yogurt. The tzatziki will come out a bit more runny, but it won’t be as sour.

** Don’t throw out the cucumber seeds or the moisture. You can use them for cucumber water or delicious popsicles (recipe online soon)!

Tip: the tzatziki is even better after it’s been standing for a bit.

Tip: of course feel free to add garlic, but this tzatziki really doesn’t need it! 😉

Valerie was brief: delicious! She does recommend leaving it out for a while because it really adds to the flavour.

Valerie’s Tip: this dip pairs up nicely with the cucumber boats! Plus, it helps with finishing the leftover cucumber (and allows for a nice extra dessert: the cucumber popsicles).
