Deliciously Authentic: Try this Traditional Greek Meze Recipe for Mouth-watering Appetizers!

Introduction

Greek meze is a collection of small dishes meant to be shared among friends and family. They are perfect for starters or a light meal. One of the most popular meze dishes is tzatziki.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. In a bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, chopped cucumber, minced garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, chopped fresh dill, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to blend.
  3. Before serving, give the tzatziki a good stir to redistribute any liquid that may have separated. Drizzle with more olive oil and garnish with a sprig of fresh dill if desired.

Tips:

  • For an extra garlicky flavor, add an extra clove of minced garlic.
  • For a creamier tzatziki, strain the Greek yogurt in a cheesecloth for a few hours to remove excess liquid.
  • Try serving tzatziki with toasted pita bread, grilled meats, or fresh vegetables.

Enjoy this traditional Greek meze recipe with your loved ones. Share the joy of food and create wonderful moments.
