Homemade tzatziki is easy to make and very healthy!  It can be used as a dip, in a pita/sandwich, on top of grilled veggies, meats, fish, whatever!

what you need:

  • 250 g greek yogurt (I use 0% PC brand)
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated finely
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped finely
  • 1/3 cucumber
  • salt and pepper
what to do:
  1. Grate cucumber, sprinkle with 1 tsp of salt and allow to sit in a sieve for 15 minutes to remove excess liquid.
  2. Mix other ingredients together, add pepper as desired (you probably don't need salt since the cucumber is salted).
  3. Squeeze shredded cucumber to get rid of most of the liquid, then add to the tzatziki.  You can serve immediately, but allowing the tzatziki to sit in the fridge for a few hours will make it more flavourful.  Enjoy!
