Cheesy tzatziki

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Cucumber, peeled, seeded and grated*
1 each Garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons Scallion, finely-diced
1 tablespoon Fresh oregano, chopped
1 cup Sour cream
1 teaspoon Ground cumin
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
2 tablespoons Feta cheese, crumbled
½ teaspoon Salt

* Original "cartoon" strip calls for "¼ hothouse cucumber" (and if you think it's easy translating a cartoon strip into a MealMaster recipe...)

Drain grated cucumber for 5 minutes in a sieve or strainer. In a medium bowl, combine cucumber with garlic, scallions and oregano.

Stir in sour cream. Season with cumin and lemon juice. Add feta cheese and salt.

Refrigerate 2 hours.

Serve as a dip for kabobs or as a topping for baked potatoes.

Iris' note: This can be made low-fat (and more like the Greek original) by substituting thick non-fat yogurt for the sour cream.
