Wild Garlic Tzatziki
Wild garlic grows on banks beside streams and along country lanes and is easy to spot at this time of year with its small white flowerheads. If you pick a leaf its garlicky smell is unmissable but make sure you wash the leaves well before use. If you can’t find wild garlic then substitute a crushed fat clove of garlic instead.
