Greek Dip (Tzatziki) for Weight Loss
Tzatziki is a delicious and versatile low-calorie dip. Use it to provide some counter-temptation to all of that holiday junk food. Here’s a very simple recipe.
Tzatziki (Cucumber Yogurt Dip or Sauce)
Peel a cucumber and cut it in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds by scraping out the center portion of the cucumber with a spoon. Grate the cucumber and press it with a paper towel to remove the extra liquid. Mix the grated cucumber with 2 cups plain Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon fresh dill or mint (or 1/3 tablespoon dry dill weed or mint), 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil (optional), and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Chill for 2 hours before serving. Serves 6.
Serve generously alongside almost any hot dish or use as a spread or vegetable dip. You can make this recipe even more flavorful by adding a finely minced or crushed clove of garlic. To make a salad dressing, use regular yogurt instead of Greek yogurt.
