Some people like Ranch dressing on everything. I like Tzatziki! This goes great with pita chips as an appetizer, or any Greek-style meat like my Souvlaki.

Please follow and like us:


  • 1
    large English cucumber, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 Teaspoon
  • 2 Cups
    Greek yogurt
  • 2
    cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2
    lemon, juiced
  • 2 Tablespoons
    chopped fresh dill
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Sprinkle grated cucumber with 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl and let stand 10 to 15 minutes to draw out juice.

  2. Place yogurt into a separate bowl. Dump cucumber and its juice onto a sturdy, dry paper or cloth towel and squeeze as much moisture as possible from the cucumber. Mix cucumber into yogurt. Add garlic and lemon juice; mix thoroughly. Stir dill into yogurt-cucumber mixture; season with salt and black pepper. Adjust all seasonings to taste.

  3. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 or 4 hours (or overnight).
