Tzatziki Sauce is THE MOST loved sauce in our household, and I make it weekly, especially during the hot summer season. My favorite way to enjoy it is to spread it onto roasted eggplant. SO. YUMMY. Below, I’ll share everything I know about Tzatziki, as well as give you many ideas on how to use it.
1 cup plain yogurt see note
2 small cucumbers
1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 garlic cloves minced
1/4 cup chopped dill
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp. sea salt or to taste
Shred the cucumbers using a box grater with a course shred. Using your hands, squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
In a medium bowl, combine the cucumber with the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
You may use Greek or Regular Plain Yogurt in this Tzatziki recipe. Greek yogurt is much thicker, so you’ll end up with a thicker sauce. Both yield great results.
