Tzatziki and burger wrap

(1/7) > >>

I got bored tonight so I wanted to eat something a bit healthier then my usual dinner so I made some Tzatziki and a burger and stuck it in a wrap.
Tzatziki is a yogurt/garlic sauce and is really easy to make and is fairly good for you.
for the meal you need
[*]a cucumber
[*]thick plain yogurt(Greek style is what most places sell it as)
[*]olive oil
[*]any meat of your choice but the less juice/salt in it the better
[*]a pita or a wrap of some kind but bread will do if you don't have any
[*]vinegar(optional depending on taste)

How food make)
[*]skin the cucumber and then grate the inside into a bowl.
[*]squeeze the bits until all the excess waste is gone
[*]mix them into the yogurt
[*]add a dash of olive oil, if you want you can also add a small amount of vinegar
[*]mix again until it the oil is well absorbed
[*]crush a garlic clove, you may only want half a clove if you are not a fan of garlic. if you dont have a crusher(like me) chop the clove into very tiny pieces
[*]mix it into the yogurt and stir for a couple of minutes
[*]you have to leave it stand for about 10-15 min in the fridge
[*]cook whatever meat you want in the wrap, I used a burger on the grill till all the juice was gone out of it
[*]warm pita/wrap/bread in oven/grill/toaster.
[*]combine meat+pita+tzatziki and eat

I think this is going to be dinner, much obliged!
Isn't this the sauce that gets put on gyros?

Triple Zero:
yeah. needs a littlebit of mint, though.

and, depending on how thick the skin of your cucumbers are, you might wanna consider just washing hem instead of skinning, before grating.

This looks good.  I may give this one a try this weekend. 

For extra thickness, line a sieve with cheesecloth placed over a bowl, and dump the yogurt into the sieve.  Let it sit in the fridge overnight.  Next day, discard excess liquid from the bowl.  The yogurt should be the consistency of a soft cheese.
