Creamy Garlic Cucumber Sauce
This garlic cucumber sauce makes a nice light summer dip for appetizers and kebabs or even just pita bread.
Rich with both garlic and cucumber this yogurt based sauce is very similar to a traditional Greek or Turkish tzatziki recipe.
Like tzatziki, this sauce is best served cold and the refreshing cucumber flavor best complements lighter flavored grilled foods like chicken kebabs.
Real tzatziki requires you to strain the water from the yogurt for 8 - 10 hours but for this recipe it really isn't necessary.
If you're not a big fan of yogurt you can substitute sour cream instead.
Look at all the time I'm saving you!
This makes an exceptional dip for the Chicken Kofta Kebab recipe.
Makes: approximately 1 3/4 cups
Prep time: 15 minutes
This provides a "chunkier" version like the one in the picture above.
If you prefer a smoother sauce then pulse the cucumber ingredients in a blender and then transfer to a serving bowl.
