This Greek yoghurt sauce made with cucumbers and fresh mint is a classic. Serve with kebabs, chips, crusty bread or warm pitta. You need to make this in advance but it still tastes really fresh.

This is a lovely cool, refreshing Greek tzatziki dip that I first tasted and fell in love with in the Greek Islands. It is lovely with hot toasted pitta bread and veggies or lamb kebabs! The key is strain the liquid from the cucumber very well so the dip stays creamy and not watery and to ALWAYS use thick, full fat Greek yoghurt. Low fat versions won't cut it. Enjoy!

There are two keys to my version of this classic Greek recipe - straining the yoghurt for 24 hours and roasting the garlic. The former ensures that the tzatziki is a gorgeously rich (not runny) consistency, and the latter imparts a mellow garlic flavour. I use more than five cloves of garlic sometimes - it all depends on your mood!
