Authentic tzatziki sauce (seriously tastes SO good!!) that you can use for dipping, with gyros, on wraps, sandwiches... so many options!!
Prep Time: 5 mins
Chill Time: 1 d
Total Time: 1 d 5 mins
Servings: 1 serving

Ingredients
 

  • 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves - minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill - chopped
  • 1/2 large cucumber - unpeeled, grated, and squeezed to drain excess liquid

Instructions
 

  • In a medium sized bowl stir together the yogurt, olive oil, vinegar, garlic and salt. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (This will help the flavors develop!)
  • Place the grated cucumber between several paper towels and ring out the excess liquid over a sink. After doing that, stir the grated cucumber and fresh dill into the sauce. Serve chilled. 
  • You can make this in advance. Once made cover and store in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Notes

If crunched for time you can mix all of the ingredients together and serve the same day you make it. However, letting the ingredients meld overnight does wonders!
