Greek Tzatziki Sauce

Difficult to say, but easy to make! This Greek Tzatziki Sauce pairs well with gyros, salads and sandwiches. My favorite is to spread it on a wrap or use it as a dip with some fresh vegetables. Makes eight ½ cup servings.


  • 1 cucumber (about 2 cups grated)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced


  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup greek yogurt (use coconut yogurt for a vegan twist)
  • 1 Grate the cucumbers with the larger holes and place in a bowl with 1 teaspoon of salt.
  • 2 In a bowl, whisk together the yogurt, lemon juice, dill, parsley, garlic, sea salt and pepper.
  • 3 Rinse the cucumbers well and strain, pressing out any excess liquid through a strainer.
  • 4 Fold the cucumbers into the yogurt mixture.
  • 5 Refrigerate until use.
  • 6 Garnish with fresh herbs and olive oil drizzle.
