Tzatziki Sauce

I’m always looking for ways to give some “oomph” to rather bland food and this Tzatziki sauce is one of my favourite ways! Not only does it taste AMAZING! But it is also good for you! AND it is super easy to make!

You can buy this at the grocery store, yes, but you get such a tiny amount and it’s like $4 for such a small amount! Plus, it’s packed full of no-so-good-for-you preservatives. Naturally, homemade is always better 🙂

What you need:

  • 1 ½ cups of Greek style yogurt or a thick plain Yogurt (I use Astro Balkan style plain yogurt because it’s cheaper and it’s my favourite!)
  • ½ medium cucumber (I prefer filed cucumbers over English cucumbers)
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic (Approx. 4 cloves)
  • ¼ tsp dill
  • ¼ tsp salt

Who You Need To Do:

Peel and remove the seeds from half a cucumber (use a spoon to scrape out the seedy center). Using a cheese grater, grate the cucumber into the yogurt (I squeeze some of the water out of the cucumber or else I find the Tzatziki sauce is way too liquidy for my liking). Also add the dill, salt and garlic to the yogurt. Stir well.

Refrigerate the yogurt sauce for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Serve cold. If liquid separates out from the sauce during refrigeration, simply stir to reincorporate before serving.

This recipe is a staple in mine and Evan’s place. If you love Greek food, or you love health food, or you just love trying new recipes, give this a shot. It’s a keeper!
