Greek tzatziki sauce is a bright, delicious combination of Greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, and a few other traditional flavors that are incredible with meat, fish, veggies, or bread. It is so easy and takes all of 5 minutes to make your own batch that is vastly superior to anything you can pick up at the market!

english cucumber, diced small (about 1 cup)
salt (for leeching water from the cucumber)
Freshly ground pepper
cloves garlic, minced
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
fresh dill, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried dill)
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon salt over the cucumber and allow water to drain in a colander over a bowl for 30 minutes. If needed, you can rinse and dry the cucumber to get rid of some of the salt, but most of it will rinse off from the water that comes out of the cucumber anyway.
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except cucumber and dill. Stir together, then stir in cucumber and dill and refrigerate for 1 hour.
