a Greek sauce made from yogurt, diced cucumber and garlic, used as a dip or condiment.
This traditional Greek condiment is made of plain yogurt, chopped cucumber, olive oil, vinegar and garlic, and may include chopped fresh dill, mint or fennel fronds. Whole milk yogurt produces the thickest, creamiest texture; whatever the fat content of the yogurt, it should be well-drained of excess water. It is particularly good with lamb and is frequently used as a sauce on gryos, but it may used as a dip for pita bread and fresh vegetables as well.
A cucumber and yogurt salad that is seasoned with crushed garlic, chopped mint, salt and pepper.
A Greek condiment incorporating garlic, cucumber and yoghurt.
Tzatziki, Tzadziki, or Tsatsiki (Ï„Î¶Î±Ï„Î¶Î¯ÎºÎ¹) is a Greek meze, or appetizer derived from the Turkish cacÄ±k, also used as a sauce or dip. The Greek word is derived from the Turkish cacÄ±k, which means a form of chutney (Cacik, the Turkish side dish with similar ingredients, is more diluted). Tzatziki is made of strained yoghurt (which in Greece and Turkey is usually made of sheep or goat milk), cucumbers (either pureed and strained or seeded and finely diced), sometimes onion, and garlic for taste—in Greece this can be as much as a whole head of garlic for a large bowlful of tzatziki.
