Greek, in honor of our meal's inspiration. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Morphing our leftover leg of lamb into Gyros. I mixed up a batch of supa-garlicky tzatziki last night and it's just melding in the fridge.<br><br>
What are you having tonight?

This is best made at least 1 hour ahead...1 day is better so the flavors meld.<br><br>
2 c plain regular or Greek-style yogurt<br>
1 medium English cucumber, peeled & seeded<br>
4-5 large cloves of garlic, minced<br>
2 T extra virgin olive oil plus additional for drizzling<br>
Salt & pepper<br><br>
1. Line a strainer with cheesecloth and drain yogurt for a minimum of 2 hours or up to overnight. You can skip this step if you use Greek yogurt, which I did this time around.<br>
2. Coarsely grate the cucumber and drain in another strainer for 2 hours.<br>
3. After all drainage has been done (<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">), mix yogurt, cucumber, garlic , & 2 T oil together and add salt & pepper to taste.<br>
4. Drizzle with additional olive oil right before serving.<br><br>
Sometimes I add a bit of fresh, chopped dill if I have it.

You have to ask? <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
Anyone bearing gifts (Trojans excepted) and who doesn't mind eating amidst the fallout of a nuclear toy explosion is always welcome Chez hobey.

I think a lot of good Greek restaurants make their own yogurt. That could be the subtle difference.<br><br>
When it comes to Greek dips, my favorites are taramosalata and skordalia. I've never made them myself though.

Hobey, I have to admit ... I entirely love to read about what you are eating for supper so I can live vicariously through your stomach. Sigh ... too busy these days to cook properly ...<br><br>
