This is an easy tzatziki sauce recipe that’s ready in 10 minutes. It’s prepared pretty authentic (Greek style) with cucumber, yogurt, and dill. Make it for steaks, chicken dishes, burgers, roasted vegetables, and for dipping with pita bread. Let’s whip up this dip.
1 medium cucumber(English cucumber preferred) seeds removed, diced into ½"
1tbsp dill, fresh, chopped
¼ tsp salt
Heat a small or medium pan on the stove to medium heat. Add olive oil and garlic and sauté for a couple minutes, stirring occasionally until garlic becomes translucent. Pull from heat before garlic browns and set aside to cool for a couple minutes.
To a large bowl, add Greek yogurt and diced cucumber. Stir to combine.
Add lemon juice, garlic olive oil, fresh dill, salt and pepper. Mix together.
Taste and season with additional salt or pepper if desired and refrigerate until it’s time to serve it, for up to 3 days.
How to prep cucumbers for authentic Greek tzatziki sauceYou don’t have to drain the cucumbers if you don’t want to. There are plenty of times I just hollow out the seeds with a spoon (and discard them), then dice cucumbers and throw them directly in this yogurt sauce.But if I have the time, I go the extra step and get out the food processor or box grater to make grated cucumbers. Then, I smoosh the cucumbers between paper towels, sprinkle on a little salt and let the cucumbers dry out the excess water for about 15 minutes.See the recipe: https://sipbitego.com/tzatziki-sauceSee the recipe video for homemade tzatziki sauce on Sip Bite Go’s YouTube.
