You may remember that a couple of weeks ago I went to London to celebrate Total Greek’s birthday and enjoy a masterclass with Eric Lanlard. In the press pack that I left with was a recipe for Tzatziki and the ingredients to create this simple dish at home. I’m not a fan of mint myself – for me the only thing which should taste link mint are mints, not savoury food – but I thought I’d give it a go. This morning I made my third batch since the event. Needless to say its a big hit. Cool, refreshing and exceedingly moreish – perfect for summer. I’ve served it with pitta chips and also salted cracker crisps.

Ingredients:
170g TOTAL 0% Greek Yogurt
1/2 cucumber
1 clove of garlic, crushed
3 sprigs of mint, shredded
Sea salt to taste

Method:
Grate the cucumber into a towel and squeeze over the sink to remove juice.
Put cucumber in a bowl with the garlic and mint and mix together.
Fold in the TOTAL Greek Yogurt and season to taste.

I make mine in a plastic tub with an airtight lid. As soon as its made I seal it and pop it in the fridge until its needed so it stays nice and cold. Make sure your tub IS airtight though – the garlic will permeate everything in your fridge otherwise. Assuming you don’t devour it all in one sitting the Tzatziki keeps in the fridge for 3 or 4 days.
