Inactive:
1 hr

Yield:
2 1/2 cups

Ingredients
  • 4 cups lowfat yogurt
  • 1/2 cucumber, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • Juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Crudites platter
Directions

Line a layer of VIVA® towels inside a fine mesh strainer and place the strainer in a bowl. Pour the yogurt into the strainer, cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator overnight to drain. The yogurt should reduce in volume by half and will have a very thick consistency.

Place the yogurt, cucumber, mint, garlic, hot sauce, lemon juice and zest in a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl. Refrigerate at least one hour before serving on a crudites platter.

When serving the Tzatziki Sauce on a platter with crudites: Fold and dampen a VIVA® towel and place it underneath the bowl you are serving the Tzatziki Sauce on the platter. This will prevent the bowl from sliding around.
