Tzatziki Dip

Tzatziki is one of my family's favourite things to eat and always bring back memories of our many holidays in Greece. It's really simple to make and tastes so much better than the shop-bought variety.
I forgot to take a photo of my last batch of tzatziki, so I've included a photo from our holiday in Skiathos, instead!
  • 250ml Greek/Greek-style plain yogurt
  • ¼ cucumber, grated
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, crushed 
  • a little chopped fresh dill (optional)
  • a dash of chilli sauce/pinch of cayenne/black pepper to taste (optional)
Grate the cucumber onto several sheets of kitchen roll.
Squeeze as much moisture as possible out of the cucumber.
Mix all of the ingredients together and chill until needed.
Serve with fresh, warm pitta bread.

Alternative: I'm not sure how this would taste using a dairy-free yogurt, but it's worth a might want to add a glug of olive oil to get a more 'creamy' taste. Let me know if it works!
