Thought it was about time I put this on here – another one thats too easy not to be given some airtime. Very similar to the Greek dish Tzatziki which you can get here.
- 250ml Natural Yogurt
- ½ Cucumber - Peeled, De-seeded & Grated
- 4 tbsp Fresh Chopped Mint
- ¼ tsp Coriander Powder
- ¼ tsp Ground Cumin
- 2 tsp Green Onion - Finely Chopped
- Pinch Salt
First prep your cucumber by peeling and de-seeding, then grate in to a sieve. Now sprinkle a pinch of salt and leave to drain over a bowl (same as when you make Tzatziki)
Whisk the yogurt lightly to loosen it up and then add the rest of the ingredients and mix together.
Cover with cling and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
TIP: Try whizzing it up in a blender to get a smoother sauce...(My preferred option) ????
