Tzatziki

Yield 10 servings (serving size: about 2 tablespoons)
Prepare this traditional Greek dip within an hour of serving time to prevent it from becoming watery. Greek yogurt is thicker and creamier than other yogurt, and we find it superior in this recipe. Serve with pita wedges.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup grated peeled English cucumber (about 1 medium)
  • 1 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt (such as Fage)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
