Tzatziki

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. If using a Greek yogurt that has already been strained, just go ahead and use it without straining it again.

1 cup plain natural Greek yogurt
1/2 long thin English cucumber, peeled
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
2-4 fresh mint leaves or 1 teaspoons dried mint
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
fresh mint sprigs, for garnish

At least 1 hour before making, place yogurt into a cheesecloth lined colander, or use a yogurt strainer. Allow yogurt to drain, discarding the liquids. In processor, finely dice the cucumber, and then add remaining ingredients. Blend well. Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and fresh mint. Serve with sautéed vegetables or lamb. Also great as a cracker or bread spread.
