Tanya’s Tzatziki (Yogurt Dip)

This is a great dip or sauce to use with chicken, lamb or with pita chips.  I make mine with extra garlic.  This is especially good served along side Herb Rack of Lamb. -ts

2 small containers of Greek yogurt (such as FAGE or Oikos)
2 cloves garlic, very finely minced
5-7 mint leaves finely chopped (I guess you could get lazy and use dried; I would never)
2 small cucumbers peeled and finely chopped 
salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper (optional) to taste
a few squeezes from a lemon
a couple drops of olive oil

  1. Prepare ingredients
  2. Mix everything together in a bowl except; All measurements are best done by taste, so use more mint if you like things minty or more garlic if you prefer. This needs to be refrigerated for at least an hour before serving, but the longer the better.
