Fresh Tzatzaki Sauce


  • 3 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • juice of 1 lemon (3 tbsp)
  • 2 medium cucumbers, seeded and diced
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt (for salting cucumbers)
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  1. Peel cucumbers and slice lengthwise. Take a spoon and scoop seeds out of the middle (it should look like a little boat when you're through).
  2. Cut cucumbers into 1/4" slices and place in colander.
  3. Sprinkle 1 tbsp kosher salt over cucumbers and let stand for at least 30 minutes (to draw out the water).
  4. Drain and wipe cucumbers with a paper towel.
  5. In a food processor, place cucumbers, garlic, lemon juice, dill, and black pepper. Process until well blended.
  6. Blend mixture into Greek yogurt. 
  7. Place into refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
