What a nice summertime treat! On Sundays, for some reason, we never really get around to making dinner. We pretty much just scrounge around in the fridge and graze. 
     Well, yesterday I ventured out into the garden, and to my great surprise, returned to the house with five huge cucumbers! I gave most of them away today, but I've had tzatziki on the brain since I started thinking about cucumbers so I had to save some for myself... I made this for the first time last year and loved it! I'm happy to share this healthy diet snack...

COOL & TASTY TZATZIKI DIP

1 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup grated cucumber, drained WELL
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2-3 cloves garlic, grated
2-3 tablespoons fresh dill, minced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or more to taste
black pepper

Grate cucumber and allow to drain. The best way is to set the grated cucumber on cheesecloth or a sturdy paper towel and allow to drain over a bowl. You can steady the cheesecloth over the bowl with a big rubber band. 

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate until ready to serve. Best serve after at least an hour of refrigeration, but if you can't wait, it's still delicious!
