go greek

So in light of yesterday's post on Anthos, I thought I'd put up a Greek inspired recipe. Tzatziki is one of those things that has the power to make almost anything taste better. Over-cooked the meat? Throw on some tzatziki. Sick of mayo and mustard on the sammy everyday? Schmear some tzatziki on there. Condiment, side dish, whatever. It's unbelievably flavorful and my version just happens to be pretty darn close to fat free. And you all know that was absolutely unintentional.


1 english cucumber peeled, seeded, and finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, grated or finely chopped
1 small lemon, juiced
1 large container of 0% fat faye yogurt
2 Tbs. olive oil
3 Tbs. fresh dill, finely chopped
2 Tbs. fresh mint, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Taste for seasoning. Chill before serving.
