non-fat plain Greek Yogurt-I like Fage best. 3 cups
English Cucumber 1/2 cut into chunks
small onion 1
fresh cilantro about 10 springs, stems and leaves please
lemon 1/2
garlic cloves 3
cumin-Penzeys is the best. 1 tsp
coriander-Penzeys is the best. 1/2 tsp
salt and pepper to taste

This creamy Greek dip is filled with fresh herbs and a hint of lemon. It’s also high in protein and low-fat, but you wouldn’t ever know it because it tastes so good. It makes a wonderful sauce. Try it with my Baked Falafel and Gyro.

 Wash the onion and cucumber. Cut into large chunks. Add the onion, the cucumber, cilantro (stems and leaves) and garlic cloves to the Ninja or blender. Puree until smooth.

 Dump the mixture onto some heavy duty paper towel or into a dish towel. Gently squeeze out as much liquid as you can over the sink. You don’t want a runny Tzatiki! When you have removed as much liquid as you can, place the mixture into a large bowl.

 Add you Greek yogurt to the mixture and the juice from 1/2 the lemon. Stir until combined. Add in you cumin and coriander. I use Penzeys Spices. You can taste the difference!  Taste the sauce. Add as salt and pepper to taste, but remember, the sauce will increase in flavor the longer it sits in the fridge. Do not over season it.

 You can serve this immediately or store it in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy on pita bread, with vegetables as a dip, or on my Baked Falafel and Gyro.

This sauce would not be possible with out my Ninja. I love this thing!!!!

This is the most flavorful brand of spices on the market. Give them a shot! You will taste the difference.
