Classic Tzatziki Sauce

Yields1 Serving

Tzatziki is a refreshing Greek sauce made up of a blend of herbs, lemon juice, yogurt, and cucumber. It pairs well in sandwiches/burgers, on top of meat, as a dip, or even on baked potatoes!

 1 Large cucumber
 2 Scallions (including pale green parts) minced
 2 cups Plain Greek yogurt
 ¼ cup Extra virgin olive oil
 1 tbsp Dill coarsely chopped
 1 tbsp Mint coarsely chopped
 1 Small garlic clove minced
 1 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice
 Sea salt and pepper

1. Peel cucumber and cut in half lengthwise removing all seeds with a spoon. Grate cucumber to coarse bits and mix with scallions and 1/2 tsp sea salt combining well.


2. Take cucumber mixture and place in a cheese cloth or dish cloth to strain out excess liquid.


3. Return cucumber to bowl and mix in the remaining ingredients. It should yield roughly 3 cups of sauce. Serve on a sandwich, on top of meat, as a dip, or even on a baked potato!
