  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp dill and/or mint
  • 1/2 clove garlic (optional)
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)


  1. Grate cucumber into a clean dish towel using the side of the grater with larger holes.
  2. Squeeze cucumber out over the sink. Water should soak the towel and drip into the sink.
  3. Scoop yogurt into a bowl. Add cucumber, lemon, and oil, and mix.
  4. Chop dill, add to yogurt mixture.
  5. Grate garlic using side of the grater with smallest holes and add to yogurt mixture.
  6. Add salt to taste.
  7. Let tzatziki sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Enjoy!
