Lemon Mint Tzatziki

lemongarlictzatziki

Tzatziki is a great sauce that goes well with grilled pork or chicken - or anything else, for that matter. We love it. Usually, it's mostly garlic and cucumber, but this time, I added the zest from one lemon, and some chopped mint, for a completely different twist on the original. It was really tasty - we served it with a spread of "greek-ish" food, while trying out my new olive oil from Kallaras.

Lemon Mint Tzatziki
200 ml Greek yogurt
1/2 cucumber
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
Zest from 1 lemon
2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
Salt

Coarsely grate the cucumber, and squeeze out as much water as you can. Mix the cucumber with yogurt, olive oil, minced garlic, lemon and mint. Season with salt.

I usually do mine with mint, but the lemon zest is new to me! Great idea!

Your tzatsiki, with it's added lemon zest and fresh mint, sounds wonderful. I imagine it's delicious served with some really simple grilled fish or chicken, marinated in olive oil and a little oregano. Thanks for sharing

I Kivik åt jag en äppletzatziki, låter kanske konstigt, faktiskt jättegott till lax!
