In a mixing bowl, blend
- 1 cup strained, whole fat, plain yogurt (if you cannot find strained yogurt, you can strain regular yogurt on your own, starting with 3 cups unstrained yogurt),
- 1 medium cucumber very finely grated and dehydrated by putting in strainer and pressing with paper towel (you may use instead the yogurt straining technique to dehydrate the cucumber),
- 2 garlic cloves very finely grated,
- 1/4 tsp onion powder,
- 1 tbsp Greek olive oil, and
- 5 drops of lemon juice.
Blend until the sauce is as smooth as can be.
Best served right after it's mixed, prepared from cold
ingredients. It's meant to be a dip for keftethes or sauce for stuffed pitas. It holds in the fridge
for a week or so.
