1-long seedless English cucumber (about 1 ¼ cups grated cucumber, when liquid is squeezed out)unpeeled, grated on the large holes of your box cheese grater
1¼cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt0 %
1wholelemon (you'll use the juice from the entire lemon)
3tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2tablespoonschopped fresh dill or 1 tablespoon dried dill
Squeeze the grated cucumber through a sieve to remove excess moisture. Make sure you squeeze it very thoroughly to get as much liquid out as possible. * You should get about 1 ¼ cup grated cucumber when you are done; if there is less, that's fine.
Then transfer the squeezed cucumber to a serving bowl.
Add everything else (the yogurt, olive oil, dill, fresh lemon juice (juice from one whole lemon, lemon juice from concentrate, garlic and salt) to the bowl, and stir to blend.
Taste and add additional salt, if necessary.
Serve tzatziki immediately or chill for later. *Leftover tzatziki keeps well, chilled, for about 4 days.
Garnish with fresh dill, if desired.
