Finally finding fresh mint leaves in one of those poky express supermarkets meant that I got to make my own last night. It's such a simple dip/side dish and it's worth it instead of buying the tiny supermarket pots, but only if you can find fresh mint. It all falls apart with that.
The only problem is, once you've started making your own tsatsiki, you'll be planning entire meals around it.
Tzatsiki, makes enough to fill two lovely Le Creuset hearts. Should feed three-four as a sort of side dish, or two if you're just eating it with a spoon.
- 1/2 a cucumber
- Four sprigs of fresh mint
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- juice of half a lemon
- drizzle of olive oil
- 100ml Greek yoghurt
Chop everything up and mix it together with the wet ingredients. Leave in the fridge for an hour for everything to mingle together. Shovel onto lamb/pitta bread/a spoon and then into your face.
