Tzatziki

I made this to eat on top of the spanikopita burgers we had for the party last night. It's also good with some pita, as a snack in front of the tv. (Not that I'd know anything about that.) And I'm anticipating it being good on my wrap tomorrow -- leftover hummus, sprouts, tomato, cucumber, red onion, chipotle cheddar cheese, on a multi-grain tortilla. It sounds like it'd be good on that, anyway.

from Grazing by Julie Van Rosendaal

1 small cucumber, peeled
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed (I put it through the garlic press)
2 c. good quality plain yogurt
salt and pepper to taste

Grate the cucumber with a box grater onto a double thickness of paper towel. Gather up the cucumber in the towel and squeeze out as much excess water as you can.
Combine cucumber, garlic, yogurt, salt and pepper in a bowl and stir until blended. If you like, add a squeeze of lemon. The garlic flavor intensifies the longer it sits.

I made this and the spanikopita burgers last night and all was right in the kingdom.
thanks for the yummy recipes.

(My spell check wants to make spanikopita into Hispaniola...really?)
