Cucumber Chive Dip

This dip really is quite as simple as it sounds but absolutely divine.

I created the dip while trying to make a traditional Tzatziki, to go with the meatball taco’s, however, when I opened the fridge I was missing 2 of the key ingredients, which of course were garlic and mint.
While rummaging around for something other than boring mayo and ketchup I stumbled across some slightly floppy chives that needed to be used before they shrivelled up. So decided to use these to create a similar style dip.

With a simple change of a couple of ingredients, it gave the dip a completely different flavour but just as fresh and creamy and delicious.

So here’s the recipe;

Ingredients

Cucumber 1/2
Chives 1/2 30g pack
Greek yoghurt 6 Tbsp
salt 1 Tsp
Pepper 1/2 Tsp

Method
