If using regular yogurt, place yogurt in a cheesecloth-lined sieve over a bowl; put bowl, covered, in the refrigerator for 1 hour to drain excess liquid. If using Greek yogurt, this step is not necessary.

Shred cucumber and let sit in food processor or in a sieve over a bowl for about 10 minutes, to drain the liquid.

In a large bowl, combine yogurt, garlic, oil, vinegar, herbs and salt. Add cucumber and mix well. Place in a serving dish, cover and refrigerate for at least two hours, to allow the flavors to mingle and make friends.

Serve with Greek or Middle-Eastern meatballs or grilled chicken, or as a dip with pita chips and veggie dippers.
This sounds really nice, thank you for sharing

Buon Giorno,

Have enjoyed all the variations on the Greek classic dip TZATZIKI ...

I have made it with cow Greek Yogurt, goat Greek Yogurt and sheep Greek Yogurt ... It is quite a regular item for us ... We enjoy it for Breakfast with Unbleached Whole meal or whole wheat Pita Toasted ... and an Iced Espresso ...

Have a lovely July 1st, Canada Day and July 4th,
Ciao, Margi.

Tzatziki has become a new staple at my house. I put it on everything from baked potato's, scrambled eggs, chili's, as trade out for mayo on sandwhiches. Excellent stuff! I made the fatal mistake of using non-fat yogurt last time I made it. It was horrid. Must use yogurt with some fat content.

I had this on an omelet last weekend. It was really good. I'll have to see if I can pull off the recipe.
