Goats Milk Recipe: Tzatziki Dressing

April 24th, 2009 · No Comments

One of my article recently was on making Goats Milk Yogurt.  Out of the yogurt,  one of my favorite recipes is Tzatziki.  Tzatziki is a cucumber yogurt dressing or dip that is commonly put on Gyros or Souvlaki.  It can also be served as a dip or eaten alone.

The secret to making Tzatziki is to either use Greek yogurt.  You can make greek yogurt by placing regular yogurt in a cheesecloth lined sieve or colander and letting it drain for an hour or so.  The resulting yogurt should be much thicker and dryer than regular yogurt.

While I used goat’s milk yogurt for mine, you can use either Greek plain yogurt or strained plain yogurt.

Tzatziki

  • 2 cups Greek Yogurt
  • 6 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated cucumber (seeded & peeled first)
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Directions:

Combine Oil and lemon juice in a bowl.  Add yogurt and mix well.  Stir in garlic and cucumber.  Stir well.  You can add more or less garlic to taste.  Keep refrigerated.

Uses:
