I love tzatziki. It’s very easy to make, and it tastes yummy! But there are times you don’t want to have garlic breath but also have the same kick of flavours in your dip. This is based on Nigella Lawson’s refreshing raita, using Greek Yogurt and pomegranate. I use the traditional tzatziki crunchy refreshing vegetable here – cucumber, and a few leaves of mint thinly sliced. It goes really well with spicy food – it helps cool down the tongue!
Ingredients: (makes a big bowl for 2-4 people)
1 cucumber, chopped into cubes.
500g of Greek Yogurt
Pomegranate seeds (from half of the fruit)
4-5 leaves of mint, thinly sliced (If unavailable, dried mint does well too. Or mint sauce!)
