For the BBQ session.

 

Made from scratch, gallon milk, Kefir culture (or yoghurt) . Two days later drain in cheese cloth so its one third volume. Shred cucumbers (four) and let drain. Crush garlic bulb and add some dill and two lemon juice.

I was just about to request this for some of that chicken you posted. ;)


Not really sure I want to try any pickled meat. I will stick with Bosss cucumber.

Man that looks good. I haven't eaten good Tzatziki since I left Crete. I would use it on Gyro's with real Souvlaki, not what they use here.

Used Oregano as added Herb, didnt have any dill except for that dip I made. This will make a good base so I will take some of that dill Dipp I made and add some of this a little later :)

Can you post an exact recipe for this? I'm really interested in giving it a try.

You don't need a recipe.

 

Only ingredients.

 

Its yogurt.

 

Shredded cucumber. 

 

Garlic.

 

Sometimes dill.

 

Olive oil.

 

Sometimes lemon juice.

 

Just throw it.

 

Taste it.

 

But you already know this.

I understand the concept of tasting as you go but I was actually asking for the recipe (weights/measurements)  and process that dragonsfire followed.

Used 4L 2% milk, add Kefir culture (or use Yoghurt culture) leave for about three days till starts to separate (depends on how warm the room is).

Then drain over night.

add some Olive oil and lemon juice to make workable and add 1.5 Garlic bulbs Garlic crushed and some Oregano (.5 bulb if want mild garlic taste).

Shred two english cucumbers and let drain for a few hours, add to mix. Use Olive oil to regulate desired thickness.
