Mint and carrot tzatziki (raw)

This mint and carrot version of the classic Greek tzatziki sauce is perfect as a spread for crusty bread or as a dip for other raw veggies. You could also have it inside a wrap, with some roasted veggies or your favorite meat strips. Anyway you plan to use it, it will be nice. :) 
I thought of it at a point when I felt the need for more fresh goodies into our diets and have become addicted to it ever since. 
Enjoy :)

Last year: Eggplant croquettes with spicy-sour yogurt sauce
Two years ago: Fast baby pasta with creamy Parmesan and pea sauce and Simple tomato sauce pasta (pasta con pomodoro).

Ingredients (makes a small bowl):
  • 1 small carrot
  • a 10 cm piece of cucumber
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 150-200 g bio yogurt
  • leaves from one fresh mint bunch
  • salt and pepper to taste

Grate the carrot and cucumber using the large grater.

Crush the garlic and mix it with the yogurt. Add it to the bowl and mix everything together. Add the finaly chopped mint:

Mix again. Add salt and pepper and it's done. Dig in! :)
