Greek Grub Obsession
While in Panama the other week, we had some of the best Greek food I’ve ever tasted. There’s something about Mediterranean food that makes me salivate…since we’ve been back in NYC, I’ve been obsessed. Hummus, giant white beans bathed in dill & tomato sauce and zesty oven-baked fish aside, my favorite appetizer is tzatziki. O man…I can’t get enough!
Skoog’s Tzatziki…serve with warm toasted whole-wheat pita triangles
1 cucumber, peeled & cubed
1 1/2 cups low-fat plain Greek yogurt
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh mint, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
salt & pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients in a medium-size bowl. Cover and chill for 30 minutes. Serve with toasted whole-wheat pita bread.
