Greek Tzatziki (Greek Yogurt Dip) ~ Day 101

Tzatziki, pronounced 'zat-zee-key', is a delicious Greek dish made of Greek yogurt, cucumber, dill, and garlic.  It goes great with falafel, flat bread, pita bread, sandwiches, or as a dip for fresh vegetables.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Yields: 1 cup

  • Greek yogurt (Full fat, 2%, fat-free) - 1 cup
  • English cucumber - 1/4 cup, grated + 2 tbsp, seeded & finely chopped 
  • Fresh dill - 1/4 cup, finely chopped
  • Garlic - 1 clove, finely grated
  • Lemon zest - 1/2 tsp
  • Lemon juice - 1 tbsp, freshly squeezed 
  • Salt and Pepper - to taste

  1. Squeeze out as much as juice from the cucumber with a fine mesh strainer or with your hand.  
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl along with the cucumber.
  3. Chill and serve with pita, vegetables, or crackers.  This goes well with Indian dishes as well.
Drained juice can be used in making smoothies or soup.
