Greek Yogurt Tzatziki

Print Friendly and PDF

Yeeeeeesssssssssahhhh I love tzatziki.

I have made tzatziki a few times in the past, and my attempts have been so-so, but I think that I have now finally discovered the best tzatziki recipe known to man.  It's sooooo good, and really easy too!  I found this recipe on, and made it as an accompaniment to my spanakopitas for a recent Greek-themed Supper Club night.

It's seriously a must-try recipe!  Do it!


1 Long English cucumber
500 grams (a little over 2 cups) Greek non-fat 0% plain yogurt (Liberté is my absolute favourite)
3 - 4 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
2 tbsp. fresh minced dill

Peel cucumber, and grate using the 'small hole' side of a box grater.  Salt lightly, and allow to drain for 5 minutes.  After 5 minutes, use your hands to squeeze out any excess water.

Combine all ingredients together into a medium-sized bowl.

Cover, and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 - 3 hours.

Makes:  About 3 cups

The Hubby's Review:  He hasn't tried it yet because I ate it all with my girlfriends at Supper Club!  They said it was delicious!!
