Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 sour cream
  • 2 spoons garlic powder
  • 1 spoon oregano
  • 1 spoon mint
  • 1 pinch dill (optional)
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • salt

Step 1

Since I can't find galaktokrema anywhere (the proper ingredient for tzatziki), I had to improvise. Mix the sour cream and yogurt (drain the yogurt first!) in a bowl until it forms a creamy homogeneous mass.

Step 2

Take a big cucumber and skin it, then grate it. Using a paper towel, drain as much water as you can. We don't want water ruining our creamy texture.

Step 3

Mix it with the sour cream and yogurt, and then add garlic, salt, olive oil and the spices to taste. Stick it in your fridge for an hour or so.
