Here it is! You all kept asking for this but then I lost the recipe. And now it is found. I usually just make this to taste, but lord knows, if you've never eaten the stuff before, you won't know the goodness of Greek Tzdsiki without a dang recipe.

Now, my godmother makes her own Greek yogurt by straining regular yogurt with a cheese cloth over the sink until it's nice and thick. Me, I buy the stuff from Trader Joe's. Her Tzadsiki is the best, but hey, I can only do so much.

1 Cup full fat Greek yogurt
1 Cup grated/peeled European cucumbers
1 Small clove garlic pressed through a garlic press
Sprinkle of dried dill
pinch or two of salt

Peel a half of a cucumber and grate on a box grater. Wash your hands and squeeze the grated cucumber over the sink to get rid of a lot of the moisture.

In a small bowl mix together all the ingredients. Salt to taste.

Top with a sprinkle of dill and paprika and serve this with pita or Turkey Meat Balls.

I bet you never knew something so good could be so simple. And now you do.
