Very simple recipe, ideal for summer when outdoor grilling is a thing.
While generally considered to be an appetizer, this is actually surprisingly filling.
For her birthday, my sister asked me to come up with the best tzatziki recipe and give it to her. I delivered.
This took me quite some time to perfect. First few times I added too many tomatoes, it was usually soggy and it always had an unappetizing liquid forming at the bottom. Overtime I experimented with different methods and ingredients, and now I have mastered the art of strapatsada, and added my own Hungarian “twist” to it. And now I am passing my ever-lasting knowledge onto you. Go forth and make me proud. (´･ω･`)
Also, I once saw a video where a woman used ketchup instead of tomatoes. I puked. Hard.
I believe this was the first Greek recipe that I ever tried. I decided to go with Greek because, well, Greek food is delicious, and our house just so happens to have all the ingredients available for most Greek recipes already. As opposed to Indian cuisine which at the time called for a bunch of spices that I had never even heard of! So Greek was a pretty good starting point for me, I think.
