Step 2: Pressing

One you have grated the cucumber it needs pressing to get rid of all the excese water in the cucumber. To do this i whacked it in a colinder and put some weight on it. Alternitavly you can squize it with you hands or find a much more elaborate and inventive!

I haven't tried this yet, but I'm going to ASAP! Maybe smushing it between two paper towels?

In the traditional recipe in my parts,we use a teaspoon of olive oil and vinegar.
I also use some grated carrot.It is more colorful this way,and tastes really nice.
I use tzatziki with almost everything,even in pasta.

I love Tzatziki. But instead of toast, I prefer pita chips.

The Instructable and images are good, but you should really fix the spelling - (e.g. yoghurt / yogurt, oregano). L
