Tzatiki-Mediterranean Cucumber Sauce



1 Medium or ¾ Large Cucumber

1 Garlic Clove

2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

2 tsp. Dill (Dried, Only)

1 C Greek Full Fat Greek Yogurt

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

½ tsp. Kosher Salt

1 Pinch Black Pepper

Step 1: Peel the cucumber, slice lengthwise, scoop out the seeds.

Step 2: Grate the cucumber by hand with a box grater or use a food processor to grate.

Step 3: Allow the grated cucumber to drain off water in a strainer or use a cheesecloth to remove excess water.

Step 4: Place cucumber in a bowl and add garlic, lemon juice, yogurt, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add some water to get a creamy consistency.


Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 1 week.

This is the perfect condiment for a grilled veggie platter, as a dip for falafel, on any sandwich needing a Mediterranean touch.
