TATZIKI

This is a great, crowd-pleasing dip to have on hand for snacking. If you are entertaining make sure you have plenty available as I am sure it will disappear before you know it. Serve with home-made or store bought pita chips such as Stacy’s.

1.5 c (about 14 oz) thick greek yogurt, ie: Fage
1.5 cucumbers, shredded
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1/4 c mint, thinly sliced
2 tsp vinegar or lemon, or more to taste
2 tsp olive oil, or more to taste
Pepper, to taste
Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
1 tsp salt, plus more to adjust seasoning if necessary

Allow the shredded cucumber to sit in a bowl with the salt for a minimum of 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the shallot and mint. With your hands or a dishcloth, squeeze all the moisture out of the cucumber. Mix the cucumber with the remaining ingredients, taste, adjust seasonings if necessary and serve with pita chips.
