Tzaziki (aka Cucumber and Garlic Dip)

2 Cups Natural Yogurt*
1/2 Cucumber

To taste:
2-6 Garlic Cloves

Dash of Pure Olive Oil
Pepper and Salt
Fresh Herbs (eg, Coriander, Parsley)

Crush the garlic and drizzle with a little olive oil, then cook to sweeten (microwaving it for a few seconds on a saucer is the quickest way). Remove the seeds from the cucumber and peel if desired (depends on the variety of cucumber). Grate or finely chop the cucumber. Stir together yogurt, garlic and cucumber, then season with salt, pepper and fresh herbs to taste.

Note: Serve with crudites, flat-bread or biscuits. Great accompaniment to any Middle Eastern food, or as a cooling raita with curries.

* Use low-fat yogurt if you need to, although full-cream natural yogurt makes a richer dip.
