Authentic Greek Tzatziki
Looking for an easy homemade tzatziki sauce recipe? This Authentic Greek Tzatziki is it! Deliciously creamy and rich, this sauce is made of simple ingredients and will step up any meal. Use grilled bread, naan, or pita for scooping and enjoy the Mediterranean flavors at home.
To make this classic tzatziki sauce, start out with the cucumber. Use a grater box to shred the cucumber. Place the shredded cucumber in a fine mesh sieve and drain it overnight in the fridge. If you’re pressed for time, gently press the cucumber into the sieve to squeeze out any excess water. Combine the full-fat Greek yogurt, minced garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, white vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Set aside for the flavors to marry and mingle. Alternatively, you can mix all of the ingredients except for the cucumber and dill, then cover and refrigerate the yogurt mixture overnight while the cucumber drains. Just before serving, stir the drained cucumber and the minced fresh dill into the yogurt mixture. Eat and enjoy!
