The Technique

Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki Sauce is a versatile recipe as it can be served with wedges of toasted Small Batch Pita Bread & crudités for an effortless appetizer or with grilled meats during the main course. Creamy Greek yogurt filled with fresh from the garden favorites such as dill, cucumber & garlic will have guests ready for second helpings quickly. A splash of lemon juice adds just the right amount of sunshine to brighten the sauce & meld all of the ingredients together flawlessly. Follow my pointers for preparing the cucumber properly so it remains thick & flavorful.

A box grater is one of the most valuable pieces of equipment in a Southerners kitchen as without it, a dignified batch of pimiento cheese is an impossibility. It also comes into good use when shredded cucumber is needed for various recipe applications, particularly when preparing classic luncheon favorites such as delicate tea sandwiches. In the case of Tzatziki Sauce, shredding the cucumber as opposed to simply dicing it offers more of the flavor to shine throughout the sauce.

The Technique

It is how the cucumbers are prepped for this popular sauce that will determine success. Removing as much moisture from them as possible will keep it thick, rich & well seasoned. Begin by removing the seeds from the cucumber. Simply, run a spoon through the cut portion. Next, swipe the cucumber over the large holes of a box grater. Place the shredded cucumber over paper towels & blot well with additional paper towels. Once relatively dry, the cucumber can be stirred into the sauce.
