Tzatziki is one of the most famous Greek dips. It is made from yogurt cheese (a strained yogurt), fresh cucumbers, garlic and greens. Tzatziki are usually served with some bread or vegetables for dipping or as a sauce for meat or garnishing. You can also use it as a topping instead of sour cream.


Greek strained yogurt: 2 cups

2-3 fresh cucumbers

Olive oil: 2 tablespoons

Garlic: 3 cloves

Mint and salt to taste

Cooking method

Peel cucumbers and grate them or cut in small pieces (do not forget to squeeze out grated cucumbers, otherwise sauce may turn out too watery). Then mix cucumbers, strained yogurt, olive oil, pressed garlic, mint and salt in a deep bowl.

Tzatziki is served cold.
