Looking for the perfect dip that goes with everything? Make classic, refreshing and cool tzatziki sauce in just a matter of minutes.


Ingredients

  • 3/4 large cucumber, unpeeled
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (juice of 1/2 lemon)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • kalamata olives (for garnish)
  • pita bread (for dipping)

Instructions

  1. Grate the cucumber and drain through a cheesecloth, fine mesh sieve or using your hands.
  2. Transfer drained cucumber to a medium bowl. Add the yogurt, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving to let the flavours infuse into the yogurt.
  4. Serve with pita bread and olives.

Notes

This tastes best when chilled overnight.
