The Greek yogurt dip!

When you think of Greece, one of the first things that come to mind is sure to be Tzatziki. That heavenly, creamy, zingy accompaniment that the Greeks love to dunk their bread into. This recipe provides a generous serving for four people. (Try to find yogurt brands like ‘Total’ and ‘Fage’ as they have the perfect consistency.)
