Yogurt was on sale.  Sometimes that’s all it takes.

tzatzikiFind yourself an English cucumber and de-seed it.  Then grate it up.  A cheese grater works fine, if you’ve got a fancy kitchen then go for the shredding attachment on your food processor.
taziki-cucumbersLightly salt the cucumber then wrap it in a paper towels and squeeze the moisture out.
tzatziki-ingredientsMix it with some minced garlic, chopped dill, extra virgin olive oil and vinegar.  Some recipes call for lemon juice instead of vinegar.  I am here to tell you that if you use lemon juice, you are really missing out on a great tzatziki.  Then mix it all up with some Greek yogurt.


Tzatziki is a tangy dip made with cucumber, fresh dill, and garlic.

  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Grate up the cucumber, salt it, then wrap it in a paper towel and squeeze out all the moisture you can.
  2. Mix it...with the rest of the ingredients. Boom! Done.
