Servings 4-6 people

  • 3 tablespoon(s) vinegar, of white wine
  • 1/4 bunch dill, finely chopped (optional)
  • 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt

A very appetizing, savory sauce that is almost always served with kebabs or souvlaki. It can also be served with baked potatoes, any meats and is surprisingly refreshing as a dip for vegetables!!

  • Peel the cucumber and grate with a cheese grater, using the larger blades.
  • Put in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar. Toss and set aside to release its liquid.
  • In the meantime, combine the yogurt, 1/3 of a garlic clove (minced), 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar and 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix until combined.
  • Mix until it is combined and creamy.
  • Squeeze the cucumber with your hands to release any remaining liquid. Discard the liquid and add the cucumber to the yogurt mixture.
  • Stir into mixture. Add pepper and adjust salt according to taste.
  • Add some finely chopped dill and your sauce is ready.
  • Refrigerate until needed.
  • Serve it with some carrots, peppers, cucumber and Greek Pita Bread!
