“PREPARATION

Remove the skin of the cucumber and coarse grate it. Grate the garlic into fine pieces. Salt the cucumber and leave it in a colander for half an hour to drain the excess water well. Place grated cucumber in a bowl; add the garlic and the remainder of the ingredients. Use a fork to mix all the ingredients well. The “Tsadziki” is now ready to pour into a bowl – sprinkle the top with a few finely chopped dill leaves. Cover and keep refrigerated until served. This lasts in the fridge for quite a while.”
