Creamy Tzatziki

I love Tzatziki especially when there are left overs. I like to think of it as the sibling to the Indian sauce Raita.
I container Greek yogurt (Greek makes is more authentic, but I will otherwise use plain Stonyfield yogurt in it's place)
1/2 cup mayonnaise (nothing tastes better than Hellman's)
1 clove of garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon freshly chopped dill
1 tablespoon freshly chopped mint
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest or else 1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cucumber, seeded then grated and drained.

  1. In a medium bowl combine all ingredients except the cucumber, mixing well.
  2. Gently fold in the cucumber.
  3. Serve as an accompaniment to Greek food or as a dip with crudite!
