Jim’s Low Fat Tzatziki Sauce

This versatile sauce can be served as a topping for any roasted or grilled meat, in place of mayonnaise in a sandwich, or with raw vegetables and/or grilled pita bread as an hors d’oeuvre.

Three Cups Of 2 % Milk Fat Greek Yogurt

Three Tablespoons Of Finely Chopped Cucumber

The Juice Of 1/2 Lemon

Three Minced Garlic Cloves

Two Teaspoons Of Dried Marjoram

1/4 Teaspoon Of Ground Black Pepper

1/2 Teaspoon Of Sea Salt

Put the chopped cucumber in a strainer. Sprinkle the sea salt on the cucumber. Place the strainer in a bowl. Allow the cucumber to sit for at least 1 hour. The purpose of this step is to remove as much water as possible from the cucumber.

In a medium bowl, mix together the yogurt, the garlic, the cucumber, the marjoram, the lemon juice, and the black pepper. Taste and add more sea salt and/or black pepper, if desired. Refrigerate for an hour before serving.
