Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

I received a sample box of yogurt to try, all opinions are my own

I love Greek food, LOVE it. So naturally I love Tzatziki sauce. I love to make Gyro’s, Greek Salad and I’m currently working on a Greek Burger. So I’ve made like 4 batches of this recently while I’m recipe testing! Mmmm

This recipe is based off of a THICK greek yogurt, if your yogurt isn’t thick enough you’ll need to strain it for awhile. It all depends on how thick you like your sauce.

You can either use a tea towel, gather and tie it to a wooden spoon over a bowl, or I find it easier to use a few paper towels in my pasta strainer over a bowl.

Also mint leaves vary in size, if I have really small ones I use even more than the 5-6. I usually puree it in my food processor, taste it (a good cook is always tasting) and add more leaves until ALMOST as strong as I want it, it will strengthen in the fridge a bit.
