How to make Tzatziki
Thinly slice the cucumber and place aside. Sprinkle deliberately with salt to pickle it and let it sit for at least 15 minutes.
Finely dice or mince the garlic and mix it in with the cottage cheese together with a little olive oil and some cracked pepper.
Squeeze the excess water from the cucumber (the drier it is, the better) and toss it into the cottage cheese.
Mix well and serve as a starter with bread, on its own or as a main dish.
