HOMEMADE TZATZIKI

HOMEMADE TZATZIKI
Even the most ordinary can be turned into something special
with a bit of thought….
Our little cockpit snack…
some of our favourite chips (black pepper and lime)…
some homemade tzatziki (see recipe below)…
some fresh veggies…
and a frosty can of Captain’s ‘double O’ beer.
HOMEMADE TZATZIKI
1 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 large English cucumber, cubed
1 tbps sea salt (for salting the cucumber)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp fresh mint
1 tbsp fresh dill
sea salt & pepper to taste
Place cucumber in collander and sprinkle with salt (*see Galley Kat Note below)
Let stand for 30 minutes.
Press out as much of the juice as possible.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and process with your blender of choice
(onboard I use our little Kitchen King Pro)
Season according to taste
 
 
 
*Galley Kat Note
Once I have salted the cucumber,
I like to reserve a couple of tablespoons of cubes
to add after blending to give some texture.

  1. […] November 29, 2014   How about a little Mexican-Greek fusion for supper tonight?       Here is something I brought onboard this summer that I didn’t use….     Canned spinach is kind of gross (in my humble opinion). ….but when I was provisioning this summer, I thought that it might come in handy should we have nothing leafy green or veggie and couldn’t or didn’t want to tramp through a little village to find something fresh.     As it turns out, it’s pretty darn good… in this recipe anyway…         GREEK QUESADILLAS with TSATZIKI […]
