I first had Tsatsiki on holidays visiting Greece, it’s the perfect cooling summer dip with goes with so many meals. Try it simply with some tortilla chips and carrot sticks, or with a mezze meal of different salads. It also pairs amazingly with some meat kebabs and pita.

This recipe is really simple and so can be prepared in 5 minutes with only a few ingredients, so great to pull out when you have people coming over but you don’t want to spend too long in the kitchen. This keeps well in the fridge, sealed, for a couple days.

Make sure you give this a try this summer!

  • ·       1 cups plain full-fat Greek yogurt
  • ·       1 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ·       1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ·       1/4 teaspoon sea flakes
  • ·       1 tablespoons chopped herbs (parlsey or mint)
  • Grate the cucumber and lightly squeeze any excess water out with your hand over the sink. 
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together and the Greek yoghurt and cucumber well. Then add the lemon, salt and herbs (if using) and mix again. 
  • Gently fold almost all the olive oil through the mix, then transfer to a serving bowl before swirling the rest of the oil over the top. 
  • Love this recipe! Quick and easy. Every week I prepare a container of fresh vegetables to snack on at work. Whatever looks the best to me on the day I shop. Celery, carrots, cauliflower, radishes, cucumbers, bell pepper, green beans (I parboil them first), mushrooms, etc. Sometimes I toss in some good quality olives too. And prepared a homemade version of a herb filled ranch and a similar version of tzatziki. Placed it in the fridge at work and told everyone to help themselves. Only one person realized one of the dips was tzatziki. They are young and just starting out in life and learning new things every day. Plus they are great test subjects for all my kitchen experiments - not yet jaded and I get honest feedback since they are not exposed to much other than what little they know how to prepare themselves or what their families prepare.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! Will be in the dip rotation from here on out!
