Zeus Street Greek’s Tzatziki recipe
  1. Using a large bowl, add all ingredients except for cucumber, and mix.
  2. Grate cucumber lengthwise into the large bowl (recommended to use the thickest grate possible). Grating lengthwise will add texture of a cucumber crunch in the creaminess of the tzatziki. Fold everything until well mixed.
  3. Add additional salt if needed to lift the flavours (different yoghurts will yield a different salt content).
  4. Place the colander into a bowl that sits so liquid can drain into it.
  5. Line colander with chux or muslin cloth so that some of it overlaps the edges of the colander. Place colander into a larger bowl to catch drained liquid.
  6. Pour mixture into the centre of colander on top of cloth and fill. Fold over cloth edges towards centre to make a bundle.
  7. Place a weight on top of cloth covered Tzatziki mix. Allow to sit for at least 5 hours in the fridge.
  8. Serve with some toast, warm sour dough or pita bread drizzled in olive oil and sea salt.
