Homemade Tzatziki


I tried tzatziki only a few years back and my love of yoghurt allowed me to like it very much! Such a wonderful refreshing taste it makes a wonderful dip or a sauce as an accompaniment.

Initially I used to buy shop bought tzatziki and then ventured in making it at home. Since then I’ve not looked back. It is quicker to make at home than to go to the shops, take it off the shelf, pay for it and bring home!

I served mine as an accompaniment to my Vegetarian quorn kleftiko dish. I also love it as a dip to crudités!


1 cucumber grated
2 small cloves of garlic crushed
6 tbsp natural yoghurt
Squeeze of lemon juice
Salt to taste
Drizzle of olive oil


• Place the grated cucumber, garlic in a medium sized bowl and stir in the yoghurt. Combine well



• Squeeze in a little lemon, season with salt and mix. Drizzle with a little olive oil to finish

  1. Tzatziki sauce is a favorite and you’re right, Dimple. It is so very easy to make and your recipe sounds delicious. Why buy it when you can make it much better at home?
