This is a pretty common sauce, but since I’m making Falafel for Meatless Monday, it’s a requirement. A cucumber- yogurt sauce with a garlicky kick, it’s great on falafel, in a gyro, or as a side to roasted meats.

Tzatziki

INGREDIENTS

1 tbsp. vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced finely
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper

METHOD
  1. Peel, seed and dice the cucumber. A super easy way to seed a cucumber is to use a spoon and scrap the softer pulp from the middle.

Creamy and cool with a little bite,  it’s the perfect foil for highly seasoned foods.
