Tzaziki Sauce


This sauce is so versatile, whether it’s a marinade for Tzaziki Grilled Chicken Skewers, a dipping sauce or topped on a Vegetarian Gyro. The best part is it gets better over time!


Tzaziki Sauce

  • Author: Roni Proter
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 2 Persian Cucumbers, skin on (can substitute pickling or ‘kirby’ cucumbers)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 cups 2% Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped dill
  • 2 cloves minced fresh garlic


  1. Grate the cucumbers using a cheese grater, sprinkle with salt, toss and allow to rest for one minute.
  2. Squeeze the cucumbers to remove extra water and place in a medium mixing bowl along with the yogurt, dill and garlic.
  3. Stir to combine and serve immediately or refrigerate for up to five days.
  4. Note: raw garlic becomes more potent with time, so if you are saving this sauce you may want to reduce the garlic by half.
