Tzatziki Sauce Recipe



  • 1 cup yogurt, strained for 2 to 4 hours
  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill or 1-1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste



Peel the cucumber and remove the seeds and soft portion (to keep the sauce from being too watery). Use a food processor to puree the ingredients and mix well. Transfer to a serving dish, cover and chill for several hours prior to serving so the flavors can fully develop.
