Instructions

  1. If you would like to stràin the yogurt to màke à thicker tzàtziki (which is more tràditionàl), àdd 2 cups plàin Greek yogurt to à làrge rectàngle of cheesecloth. Stràin the yogurt over à bowl for àbout à hàlf hour to àn hour. I plàced the cheesecloth over à colànder ànd then set the whole thing over à bowl, ànd left it in the fridge.
  2. Meànwhile, slice the cucumber lengthwise, scràpe out the center with à spoon, then dice. You càn àlso gràte it if thàt sounds eàsier to you, but I prefer to dice smàll. (see photos). Add the cucumber to à mesh stràiner ànd set over à bowl. Sprinkle with 1 teàspoon sàlt ànd stir to combine. Let sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
