Tzatziki is best made with Greek yogurt, which is creamier and richer than regular yogurt; it should be drained so that it isnt runny. Click on the other pix to enlarge them and read captions.
This is a traditional condiment for any Greek table; Tzatziki is light and refreshing in hot weather.
Meze are small dishes which provide the diners with a variety of tastes; here is a salad of rocket and tomatoes, eggpplant salad with capers, and tzatziki, served with bread or pita.

Ingredients:
Makes about 3 cups

2 cups Greek yogurt, drained
1 large cucumber, peeled and grated or chopped fine
3 large cloves garlic, pressed or minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, optional
About 1 tablespoon lemon juice or red wine vinegar
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Drain the yogurt in a colander or large sieve lined with cheesecloth for at least a few hours or overnight. Drain the grated or chopped cucumber for 30 minutes or so; press on the cukes to release the juices.

In a bowl combine the yogurt, cucumbers, garlic, dill, and lemon juice. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Combine well and taste for seasoning. Refrigerate for about an hour before serving; will hold in the fridge for about 48 hours.
