Tzatziki is a Greek sauce usually made with yoghurt, but we’ve used homemade Kefir for a richer, mega probiotic hit. After tasting this easy to make, homemade extra healthy Tzatziki sauce recipe , you won’t want to go back.
- 4 cups Kefir
- ½ Telegraph Cucumber
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 Clove Garlic
- Sprig of mint
- Squeeze of lemon juice
Strain Kefir overnight in a cheesecloth suspended over a bowl. The whey will drain into the bowl leaving a thicker Kefir.
Peel and dice the cucumber, then put into a colander and sprinkle with salt. Place a plate on top and put something heavy on top. The salt will help draw the water from the cucumber. Leave for 30 minutes, then dry further with paper towels.
Put the cucumber, mint, lemon juice and minced garlic into a blender and blend briefly.
Stir cucumber mix into the kefir. Add additional salt if needed.
This homemade tzatziki sauce goes well with any greek cuisine and also pitas, meats, topping for baked potato and as a dip.
