Cucumber Raita Sauce

This is a versetile dish that could be used with many other dishes.
We used it in our Shrimp Curry dish and our Chicken Gyro lettuce wraps.
(Recipes to come)
I would recommend it for any spicy dishes or maybe a hearty soup.

What you will need:
1 Cup Plain Thick Greek Yogurt
1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Cucumber (peeled and deseeded)
1/2 Clove Garlic Minced
2 teaspoons Lemon Juice
1/2 teaspoon Salt

Mince a 1/2 a clove of garlic

Peel & deseed your cucumber
Finely chop 1/2 a cup

(Optional Step)
Place finely chopped cucumber between two paper towels

Press down to release liquid from cucumber

You might have to use your knife to scrap the bits of cucumber off the towel.

2 Teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

Make sure you purchase GREEK Yogurt! Any brand will do,
but it MUST be Greek Yogurt or it will not taste right.

Mix the cucumber, garlic, salt and yogurt until well blended.
Of course take a small taste to make sure it wont poison anyone. :o)

The Finished Product - Refrigerate at least 1 hour or longer before serving.
We like to make it the day before and let the flavors blend
and rest overnight in the frig.

If you try this recipe please let me know. I would love to know your thoughts and how you used it in your dish. :o)
