Print the recipe card! roasted garlic tzatziki
Tzatziki is a traditional Greek dip made from yogurt, cucumber and mint. This recipe is a tzatziki wanna be since I subbed in water chestnuts for the cucumber but it’s still good, so why not? On top of that, I’m taking all kinds of liberties by including real garlic in a recipe here …so here’s my reasoning. From what I understand freshly harvested garlic can be stored for up to 6 months in a cool dry place, so that atleast puts it in a short term (3 month) storage category. Of course you could always substitute garlic powder in it’s place if needed.
The biggest key to this dip is how long you strain the yogurt ahead of time over cheesecloth. 24 hours is the goal after which you’ll be left with an almost soft cheese consistency. This dip is wonderful for spreading on crusty bread!
