It was a very hot day, and all we feel like eating was something cool and fresh. A little couscous salad, roasted aubergines and of course that creamy cucumbery thing the Greeks call Tzatziki. It tastes much better by a big blue sea, but nevertheless it is always welcome in a bright Summer day. The recipe was adapted from Reference Answers



  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 1 unpeeled cucumber, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


In a bowl, add the cucumber, garlic, olive oil, and salt to the yogurt.

Blend well with a fork and refrigerate.

Serve with toasted pieces of pita bread or fresh vegetables, such as carrots, celery, or peppers.
