Tzatziki

 

 


 

Cascading Kitchen Notes

Make sure to sweat the julienned shreds in a colander tossed with a pinch of sea salt.  It will help release an ample amount of water so that it doesn’t make your dip runny.  Squeeze the shreds with your hands after sweating for 30 minutes to remove any extra water before adding to the dip.

Tzatziki, the Traditonal

Or the vegged up crunchy style

More than just a dipping sauce.  Put it on a sandwich or a dollop on a bowl of soup or stew, side dress a salad or just eat a spoonful!

Stir together:

  • 2 cups of whole milk yogurt
  • 1 clove of garlic– minced (more if you'd like)
  • 1 cucumber-peeled, seeded and finely shredded

Allow a few hours for the flavors to meld.

In addition to the traditional cucumber you can also use julienned or coarsely shredded zucchini, spring turnips, celtuce or radishes for extra flavor and a nice crunchy mouthfeel.

Adding a few green minced herbs, tops from spring turnips or early radishes, scallions, or mint will change the flavor to match a meal.  Take a look at Week Four CSA 2020 Video at 25:34 for Tzatziki inspiration.

We even spoon this onto a soup.
