I absolutely love my CSA, but lately we have been getting way more than we can eat. It upsets me when I throw away veggies that we just could not use before it went bad, so this week I told myself we would try to use all of it so I do not waste more food. Yesterday we had gotten three big cucumbers and I really did not want to just cut them all up and add them to a salad in hopes we would eat it every night, so I decided to make a Greek Tzatziki sauce and make chicken and tofu gyros for something different for dinner! The recipe is so easy and so delicious that it will definitely be made again.
1 big cucumber- peeled (or partially peeled), deseeded, and diced- I had about 2 cups
2 cups plain greek yogurt
3 garlic cloves- minced
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh dill finely chopped
**Dash of salt and pepper to taste- If you like a little spice add 1/8 (or more) Cayenne pepper
Mix greek yogurt with cucumbers and garlic.
Add dill and lemon juice and mix altogether. Add salt and pepper to liking.
Refrigerate 1+ hours before using.
