  5. Serve meatballs with tzatziki.

Tzatkiki

  1. Place yoghurt in a sieve lined with muslin over a bowl and stand for 5-10 minutes to allow the excess whey to drain away. Place yoghurt in a bowl and discard the whey.
  2. Meanwhile, coarsely grate the cucumber and squeeze out excess moisture with your hands.
  3. Combine yoghurt, cucumber, garlic, chives, olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl and mix well. Season with salt.
  4. Cover and place in fridge for a day before serving to allow flavours to develop.
