Tzatziki (Greek Dip)


I’ve searched for tzatziki recipes before and it seems this one is the most common recipe… every site I click on seems to have about the same recipe. So, this one is not my own, but we were so happy with the results that I want to share it here.


2 cups of thick Greek yogurt (I used some homemade yogurt I’d made the day before with great results.)

4-10 cloves of garlic, finely grated (I used 5 large cloves and thought it was perfect.)

1/2 cup grated cucumber

1 Tablespoon olive oil

2 teaspoons lemon juice

Directions and Notes:

1. In a medium bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, and yogurt. Stir until the yogurt and oil are mixed completely.

2. Add the garlic and cucumber. Stir until evenly distributed.

3. Chill well before serving.

Optional: Add a little dill when you stir in the garlic and cucumber.

Oh, and here’s an article all about what do with tzatziki sauce. We added ours to pita pockets with lamb and pork soulvaki. It was amazing!
