Today I am going to serve cevapcici and of course tzatziki, a wonderful combination and suitable for the wonderful spring day that we have in Stockholm today. I have experimented a lot with the recipe but this basic recipe is just so easy and delicious.

Once now and then I mix in either chopped parsley or mint and sometimes I use a little (1 tbsp) of the dressing mixture that I have blogged about before: “Dressing with many uses PoP”.

The most important thing is that you taste and correct the seasoning according to your taste.

Ingredients for 5 dl (2 cups) of tzatziki
4 dl plain yogurt
1 large cucumber
2 – 3 garlic cloves
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon or lime juice


  1. Make sure that your yogurt has as little liquid as possible.
  2. Peel and grate the cucumber on the coarse side of the grater, use a kitchen towel and squeeze as much liquid as possible from the cucumber.
  3. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients and mix well.
  4. Taste and correct seasoning.

For serving: put the tzatziki in a bowl, decorate with some more olive oil and some olives!
