Step 1: Grating

First you need to grate your cucumber, i used about half cucumber in in this batch.

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!

Step 3:

Chop up your clove of garlic !

Step 4:

Mix the yougert and cucumber together.

Step 5:

Then mix in your garlic and some herbs. Ive added a bit of mint and little bit of oergorno I used dried herbs but if you have access to fresh herbs it will taste even better !

Step 6:

Mix it together and taa daa your Tzatziki is ready.

    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.

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