  • 1 cup ‍Greek yogurt (full-fat recommended​ for‍ creaminess)
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill

  2. In ⁣a bowl, combine your Greek yogurt, minced garlic, olive​ oil, lemon juice, and finely chopped dill.
  3. Squeeze out any remaining water ‌from the cucumbers using a clean kitchen ‍towel or paper towel. Then, add the drained cucumbers to your yogurt ‌mixture.
  4. Stir everything together until well mixed. Then, season⁣ with salt to taste.
  5. For the best flavor, ​cover⁢ the⁣ bowl and let your ‍Tzatziki rest in your fridge for⁢ a couple of hours before serving. This ​allows the flavors to meld together beautifully.


Remember, fresh ​ingredients ⁢make the dip extra tasty so use freshly ⁤squeezed lemon juice and fresh⁣ dill for ⁤best results. Also, the resting time truly makes a difference in⁢ the end product so try ⁤not to skip it!

There‍ you have⁤ it -‍ authentic ⁣Greek Tzatziki dip that’s creamy, refreshing,⁤ and packed ​with flavors. ⁢It’s ​a simple sauce, but ⁣it ‌is brimming ‍with the spirit of the Mediterranean.
