Tzatziki Perfect Summer Food

I can't believe we went through this entire summer without making tzatziki. It's such a simple dish and we always have such enormous amounts of raw yogurt in our fridge. This was made in a few minutes using strained raw yogurt, 1 peeled and de-seeded cucumber, crushed garlic, salt, olive oil and pepper. Our yogurt is super thick, not the thin goopy stuff so it lends itself to being the perfect tzatziki.

Try a little fresh mint in the tzatziki. I bet that you will like it.

A little bit of finely minced lemon zest is a nice touch too, not so much that it tastes like lemon but just enough to brighten it up. I use this recipe http://allrecipes.com/recipe/tzatziki-ii/detail.aspx and add just a pinch of lemon zest.
