TZATZIKI
========

This is a very versatile Greek sauce/dip/salad dressing.

Ingredients:
------------
4 cups plain yogurt, regular or nonfat
2 or 3 large cucumbers, peeled and seeded
Salt
2 to 4 garlic cloves (or more to taste)
1 tblsp fresh lemon juice
1 tblsp high quality olive oil

Optional:
---------
freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup freshly chopped mint leaves (or to taste)

Instructions:
-------------
Line a sieve with either a double thickness of dampened cheesecloth or
linen tea towel. Spoon in yogurt and set the sieve over a bowl.
Refrigerate for two to three hours or until yogurt is about half its
volume, nicely thick and creamy.

Shred or cut cucumber into julienne strips. Place in a colander in sink
or over a bowl, sprinkle generously with salt, mix well and let drain
for at least 30 minutes, preferably an hour. Rinse and gently pat dry.

Press the garlic into a bowl and, using a fork, mash it with a little
bit salt. Add the thickened yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice, olive oil,
and if desired, the pepper and mint. Mix well. Serve or refrigerate up
to two days so flavors will mingle. Stir again before serving and
sprinkle with additional minced mint leaves if desired.

Recipe may be cut in half.
