If you love gyros, then definately you have met this sauce. This is a sauce or condiment of the greek origin, its very perfect for gyros, sandwiches or fish dishes. I used this to accompany a meal that included fish fingers and thought of how nice it would be to have this tart sauce on the side.The tart from the lemon juice and the freshness from the herbs are a good combination to bring this sauce to life.The beauty about making your own sauces is that you can customise them to your liking in terms of flavoring and spicing and you can control what goes in them. The name should not scare you either as it may sound complex but very easy to make so get ready to make some tzatziki.
Greek yoghurt 200ml
1 large cucumber
Juice from 1 lemon
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh dill herbs
1/4tsp of red chilli flakes(optional)
1/4 tsp of garlic paste
1/4 tspn of black pepper.
Grate the cucumber, then place on a kitchen towel to drain excess water. Place this in a clean bowl.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well.
Cover the bowl with a cling film paper and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Best served chilled.
You can spread this on a sandwich, or serve with fillet, fish fingers as a condiment. Any natural yoghurt can be used in place of greek yogurt. Gyros is a type of sandwich from greek that uses lamb as the meat filling.
