Greek Tzatziki Sauce

A very appetizing, savory sauce that is almost always served with kebabs. It can also be served with baked potatoes, any meats, and is surprisingly refreshing as a dip for vegetables!!


Make sure your grated cucumber is well-drained. If you have time, you can drain it in a fine-mesh sieve overnight.

If you’re in a rush, you can use your hands to squeeze the liquid out of the cucumber.

The longer the garlic rests in the yogurt, the less sharp bite it will have, and the better it will taste.

For best results, combine all of the ingredients except for the cucumber and dill, then let it rest overnight in the fridge while your cucumber is draining.

Add the dill at the last minute so it doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the flavors.

Hope these tips come in handy when you try making your next greek tzatziki sauce.

This is so tangy and delicious; perfect spread over some warm bread!

Of course, this Greek sauce is a great Gyro sauce.
