Tzatiki Dip

I love Tzatiki!  This recipe is simple.  It's a cucumber/dill sauce that's great on almost everything.  We had it on pan roasted pork chops that were marinated in lemon, oregano and garlic.

I'd put Tzatiki on salad, as a dip for veggies.  It's cool and creamy, perfect for summer.  I like this recipe because the base is a combo of yogurt and sour cream.

Put all ingredients into a food processor

3T Olive oil
1T Wine Vinegar
2cloves Garlic finely minced
1/2t Salt
1/4t White pepper
1c Greek style yogurt (much creamier and tighter)
1c Sour cream
1 English cucumber, seeded rough chopped into chunks
1t or more Fresh dill, finely chopped

Pulse until smooth.  Place in bowl and fridge.  I find an hour is the minimum time to let it meld.  Much better the next day.  Keeps for quite a while in the fridge.

Happy Eating!
