Tzatziki is traditionally Greek. It can be eaten occasionally with something like curry. It's also perfect as a salad dressing.

(4 to 6 portions)

  • 1 cucumber (250 g), diced
  • 250 ml Greek yoghurt
  • handful of fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 sprigs mint, finely chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • salad leaves of your choice
  • 2 green apples, thinly sliced
  • juice of 2 lemons

Mix cucumber, yoghurt, dill, garlic and mint. Season well with salt and pepper. Put salad leaves in a large bowl, together with apple slices. Squeeze lemon juice over the salad. Spoon tzatziki over the top and serve immediately.

HINT: You can also grate the cucumber for the tzatziki. Leave the grated cucumber in a sieve over a bowl for 10 minutes, so the excess moisture in the cucumber can run out.
