This is a lovely, cool, refreshing Greek tzatziki dip that I first tasted and fell in love with in the Greek Islands. It is lovely with hot toasted pita bread and veggies or lamb kebabs! The key is strain the liquid from the cucumber very well so the dip stays creamy and not watery and to always use thick, full-fat Greek yogurt. Tzatziki is great with crusty bread, french fries, pita bread, baked potatoes, or with any sort of wrap such as gyros, souvlaki, falafel or kebab. Also, I traditionally use fresh garlic, but this time I used ROASTED garlic.
