Two salads

I cooking these two salads ....
Do you know what are they ?


                               
                                            The famous  Greek  tzatziki   !!!!!!

                               I copy  and paste the way of cooking and I am sorry for the bad post !!!




What we need:
· 1/2 kilo of yoghurt straggisto/bag
· 3-4 large undeveloped cloves garlic
· 1 Curt bath salt
· 1 k.s. vinegar
· 1 large cucumber
· 3/4 flytz. olive oil
How do:
1. Clean the garlic, cut the clothes in length and afairoyme green germ which is located in the Centre.
2. Liwnoyme garlic with special composting tool and put the melted garlic in a mortar.
3. Add salt and liwnoyme with goydocheri until the mixture becomes homogeneous.
4. Without treating the cucumber, cut it in two and then cut each in half in LENGTH.
5. With a koytalaki xynoyme and removing the Interior of aggoyrioy with sporakia. At the end we have 4 "boots ever farther out. The move to trifti and if it remains still the cucumber liquid straggizoyme.
6. A basin put yoghurt and cucumber and mix with a spoon.
7. Add the other ingredients and mix. The tzatziki is ready, we test and if needed add salt yet ligo.
Little secrets still
The secret of aggoyrioy: do not clean the skin, why there are all these nutrients and gives color to the tzatziki. Away from before the spores inside and only triboyme with red skin. Thus it is safer that will not nerwsei the tzatziki. The secret of garlic: the germ have been removed, so of course the taste of garlic in with Mint but not smells bad in our mouths. The poltopoioyme fully (not just triboyme), so the taste goes everywhere and not just in any possible bath.

  1. Hello Olympia:
    Oh dear, your tale of two salads has been completely lost in translation.......we really had to admit defeat at the point where the receipt called for...'koytalaki xynoyme'.....!!!! May we just come to Greece and try yours?!!!!!

  2. Dear Olympia: Love tsatsiki but what is fava? I definitely need an explanation as otherwise I will not be able to prepare it! Otherwise I'll have to travel with Jane and Lance to discover yours.... Big hugs, Christa

  3. Dear Olympia,
    I would love to try your recipes, but the translation is not so good. I know it is difficult when you use the translation sites on the net. Tzatziki is very popular here, used as a dip. The tzatziki and fava look delicious on your plates.
    Hope you and your family are well. Have a good week.
