Authentic Greek Tzatziki sauce
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Red Wine or Rice Vinegar
1 Clove Garlic, Minced, Or More To Taste
1 Large Cucumber
Salt To Taste
1 (17.6 Ounce) Container Full Fat Plain Greek Yogurt
Step 1 Stir together olive oil, vinegar, and garlic in a bowl and let sit while you prepare the cucumber.
Step 2 Peel cucumber and cut in half lengthways; scrape out all the seeds. Grate cucumber with a cheese grater into a sieve set over a bowl. Sprinkle with salt. Strain out as much liquid as possible by pressing down in the sieve with the palm of your hand. Alternately you can wring cucumber out in a clean tea towel. Add cucumber and yogurt to the garlic mixture. Mix until well combined and season with salt to taste. Refrigerate and allow flavors to marry.
