A GREEK COOK BOOK
TZATZIKI Ingredients 2 32 oz. containers of plain yogurt 4 medium or 2 large cucumbers 1 head of garlic 2 large lemons olive oil 1/2 tbsp fine ground white pepper 1/2 tbsp salt
Steps Gather together the ingredients.
Peel cucumbers and slice long wise.
Shred cucumber and drain with sieve to remove excess liquid.
Remove outer skin from garlic, separate into cloves and peel.
Chop garlic and put into a food processor with olive oil until chunks are gone.
Using sieve with a coffee filter, drain yogurt for about 15 minutes for each coffee filter full. (You will get about 1/2 container of yogurt in a coffee filter)/ Or take a strainer(bowl shape), put paper towels spread out in it, and then put in yogurt to strain
Place together in a large stainless steel mixing bowl: shredded cucumber, drained yogurt, salt, pepper and olive oil/garlic mixture.
Juice lemons and add to mixture
Beat mixture with a whisk or large spoon until all ingredients are totally mixed.
You may want to taste a little and adjust the ingredients to your taste.
Cover mixing bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 2 to 3 hours before serving. This gives the garlic a chance to really unleash its' flavor.
