How to cook: Cucumber Sauce


In Greek: Tzatziki

Ingredients
Salt, to taste
Fresh garlic, to taste
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. olive oil (the greener the better I say)
1/2 lg. cucumber
1 lb. sour cream or plain yogurt

Directions
Empty sour cream into medium sized bowl. Peel and shred cucumber in seperate bowl, then squeeze pieces of cucumber to drain the water out of it. Add to sour cream, and mix together. Use a fork or spatula (do not put in food processor!). Add olive oil and vinegar to sour cream. Taste as you go along. Then add your fresh Garlic, add as much as you like. Then add salt to taste as well. Once it is all mixed together, it is ready to eat!!! And it is yummy!

In your cucumber sauce you have used sour cream. This is not correct. Strained ogurt is the right ingredient

Greek Yogurt/ Yourti
is best. If it's home made or the type most commonly found in U.S, grocery stores, it has to be strained
using a cheese cloth.

Restaurants in the states take a less expensive and faster route, using Sour Cream. The health benefits of the Yogurt are lost this way.

So, for people you love, use yogurt.

don't destroy the originallity of this recipe. NEVER NEVER we use sour cream, just plain full fat yogurt. This is my picture from http://www.pefkohorivillage.com/kitchen/eng_photos.htm. Use it but give credits please...
