The Best Tzatziki
Serves 2-3, depending on appetite
1/2 cup English cucumber, grated with the large holes of a box grater
1 clove garlic, finely grated or pressed
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1 small container Greek-style whole-milk plain yogurt
1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

- Over the sink, squeeze handfuls of the grated cucumber until no liquid remains.
- In a bowl, mix cucumber and remaining ingredients.
- Let sit for at least 10 minutes. It is better several hours later, if you can wait that long.
