Depending on the region, tzatziki is given a more acidic tang by adding half a teaspoon or so of vinegar or lemon juice; personally, I prefer it to make it more mellow with a tablespoon of mayonnaise - it's a matter of taste.
Generally no pepper is added though some people add a pinch of dill.
Serve it as a dip with crudités.
- Sprinkle the chopped cucumber with a generous pinch of sea salt and let it drain for a few minutes (a food processor is not recommended for chopping a large amount of cucumber since it will then have to be drained in a strainer);
- combine all the ingredients;
- refrigerate until serving time.
