Forget all sauces, eat tzatziki!


A tasty, juicy summer (and winter, why not?) sauce, tzatziki is a delicious and uber-easy-to0make alternative if you want to eat something healthy along with your meat or vegetables.

What you’ll need:

  • Greek strained yogurt (2 cups) – I use Total 0%
  • A teaspoon of balsamico
  • 1 small garlic clove (shredded)
  • Quarter of a cucumber
  • A pinch of dill (optional)
  • Olive oil (1 teaspoon)
  • Salt (half a teaspoon)


Step 1
Put the yogurt in a big bowl.

Step 2
Peel off the cucumber and cut it in the middle (so that you will have two long pieces, where you can see the seeds). Take a small spoon and take away the seeds. Now you should only have the flesh of the cucumber. Cut the cucumber in very small pieces.

Step 3
Mix the garlic and cucumber with the yogurt.

Step 4
Add the vinegar, olive oil, dill and salt and stir well.

Step 5
Put the mix in the fridge for half an hour. Serve cold.


Serve while smooth and chill, toss on a bit of dill

Tzatziki is a perfect dip, or as a sauce for gyros.
