This Greek dip is usually made with cucumber that has been chopped, but works just as well if the cucumber and herbs are blended. You can reduce the amount of garlic if wished for a milder flavour.

This makes an ideal accompaniment to curried dishes, but can also be used as a refreshing snack. If you find bread or pitta bread difficult to eat, try tzatziki as a different flavour on soft mashed potato.

Preparation time:5 minutes

Serves:2 - 4

If you don't have any fresh mint, you can use ready-made mint sauce instead.
