Goes great with Lamb Kebabs, Veggies, and Pita!


  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt can sub soy yogurt
  • 1 cup seeded cucumber shredded or diced
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice or white wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp chopped dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Strain yogurt using a cheesecloth or coffee filter for 30 minutes to 3 hours to remove excess moisture (you can skip this step if you're in a hurry).

  2. Sprinkle salt onto shredded or diced cucumber, then lay out on paper towel to draw out moisture.

  3. Mix together yogurt, cucumber, dill, garlic, and lemon.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


Add a touch of olive oil for flavor and shine.
Serve with Kebabs, pita, veggies, or really anything!
The flavors become less tangy as you let them sit, so your tzatziki might just be best the next day.
