The clear star of this remixed meal, however, was the sauce. A homemade Tzatziki (Greek yogurt and cucumber) sauce.
Homemade Tzatziki Sauce
- 12 oz of plain Greek yogurt
- juice from 1 small lemon
- 1/2 garlic clove, chopped
- 1/2 a cucumber, peeled and diced
- 1/2 tsp dried dill
- salt & pepper to taste
First, you'll want to remove some of the water from the diced cucumber pieces. To do so, place them in a colander or strainer and coat them with about 1/2 tsp of salt, and let them sit for 20 minutes. When enough moisture has been wicked out, pat the pieces dry with a paper towel.
Combine cucumber pieces, lemon juice, garlic, dill, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor (I don't own a full-size blender, but my Magic Bullet worked well for this) and blend thoroughly. Add the Greek yogurt to the blended cucumber/spice mix and stir with a spoon until combined.
You can store the sauce in the fridge for a few days. I also read in a couple of places that letting the sauce sit for 1-2 hours after preparing it helps the flavors to fully combine before serving. Enjoy!
