Greek Yogurt Sauce

Tzatziki, a Greek yogurt sauce made with diced cucumbers, garlic, and herbs, is popularly used on gyros.  We think it goes great with barbecue as well (barbecued gyros? blog post soon? maybe?).  Next time you grill or barbecue up some chicken, try cutting it up and putting it over a mixed greens salad with grape tomatoes, feta, and a generous amount of  Sizzle Grove Greek Yogurt Sauce.  This makes a healthful, high protein, high calcium, vitamin-rich dinner... yes, we think about that stuff.

1 clove garlic, crushed or minced
Juice of 1/4 lemon
Dash salt
Dash pepper
A few sprigs of chopped flat leaf parsley
A few sprigs of chopped fresh oregano
1/4 large cucumber (or equivalent)
16 oz container of Greek yogurt
1 tbsp olive oil

1. Start with garlic in a mixing bowl with salt, pepper, and lemon juice.  Mix up.

2. Pour in greek yogurt and olive oil, mixing well.

3. Remove seeds from cucumber, and dice up into tiny pieces.

4. Add diced cucumber and herbs, mix well.  Refridgerate a few hours to let the flavors blend.
