Tzatziki sauce

  1. Prep the cucumber. In a food processor, grate the cucumbers. Toss with 1/2 tsp kosher salt. Transfer to a fine mesh strainer over a deep bowl to drain. Spoon the grated cucumber into a cheese cloth or a double thickness napkin and squeeze dry. Set aside briefly.
  2. In one large mixing bowl, place the garlic with remaining 1/2 tsp salt, white vinegar, and olive oil. Mix to combine.
  3. Combine and chill. Add the grated cucumber to the large bowl with the garlic mixture. Stir in the yogurt and white pepper. Combine thoroughly. Cover tightly and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
  4. When ready to serve, stir the tzatziki sauce to refresh and transfer to serving bowl, drizzle with more olive oil, if you like. Add a side of warm Country Cuisine’s chicken strips, warm pita bread and your favorite vegetables.
