Here’s a refreshing recipe from Whole Spice for Tzatziki, a cool cucumber dip, to bring to your next picnic.
3 Persian cucumbers, grated
1 scallion, chopped fine
3 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
2 small cloves of garlic, minced
4 Tbs. fresh dill, chopped fine
2 cups Greek yogurt
3/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 Tbs. olive oil
Mix all ingredients together well and serve with pita chips (below).
2 pita breads
2 Tbs. water
3 Tbs. olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350. Slice the pita into bite-sized squares and place them in a small bowl. Mix water and olive oil and drizzle over the pita squares. Season with salt and pepper. With your hand, gently mix to make sure all pita bites are coated. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
