Tzatziki, Learn To Make Your Own Fab Greek Dip


As far as I am concerned, Tzatziki is to Greek food as Mango chutney is to Indian. I love it with lamb or chicken and have in the past used it as an alternative to mayonnaise.

If you are filling pitta bread or looking for something to go with Gyro then Tzatziki is the perfect accompaniment. Seeing as the weather is improving and people are dusting down their barbecues, knowing how to make your own Tzatziki will come in handy very soon!

This recipe comes via Savour Magazine website that has full instructions. Here is what you will need…

  • ½ large English cucumber, peeled
  • 1 tbsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 2 cups plain full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp. finely chopped dill
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped mint
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, mashed into a paste
  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Paprika, for garnish

If you want to see a video of the sauce being made then check out this one by Chef John of Foodwishes. It has just about the same ingredient list except for the shallot.
