Avocado Tzatziki

Adding avocado to the authentic tzatziki recipe gives it a richer flavor and color. It would be excellent with any kind of grilled food such as lamb, chicken, pita, meatballs (keftedes) and fried fish. The avocado adds another dimension to the dip creating a silkiness and lightness that is unexpected.




• 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
• 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
• 1 teaspoon minced garlic (about 1 large clove)
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2 cups plain yogurt (or low-fat)
• 1 cup peeled, seeded and grated cucumber (about 1 medium cucumber)
• 1 whole peeled avocado, diced small

Add the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and salt to the yogurt. Add the grated cucumber, diced avocado and mix well. Chill for at least an hour to allow the flavors to blend.
