Tzatziki Sauce Recipe
Tzatziki is for sure my favorite greek condiment. I think because it reminds me so much of sour cream lol and I LOVE sour cream.
It’s so creamy, yet has that perfect thick consistency. Packed with so much flavor you can eat it alone with veggies or add/spread it on any sandwiches, bowls etc.
Tzatziki is a pretty basic recipe that typically is summed up with 4-5 ingredients. However like I said above I love sour cream and I add a little to my Tzatziki sauce recipe because I think it adds a little more creamy richness to the yogurt and also helps to cuts the tang of the yogurt a bit.
1 English cucumber
1 ½ cup Greek yogurt
½ tsp garlic powder
1 ¼ tsp salt
¼ cup sour cream
1 lemon juiced
1 ½ Tbsp dill
Step 1: Peel the cucumber
Step 2: With a larger sized cheese grater, grate your cucumber into a measuring cup and then use a couple paper towels and drain the water. (* draining the water will help to keep the yogurt from being runny. Cucumbers are full of water)
Step 3: Put cucumber into the desired bowl, add the Greek yogurt and sour cream, and with a spoon mix the ingredients together.
Step 4: Chop the dill finely and add the dill, spices, and lemon juice to the bowl. Mix well.
Step 5: Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. While the yogurt is chilling, chop up veggies to serve with the dip.
*Letting the yogurt dip chill, helps marinate the flavors together and also thickens the yogurt up. It is also even better the next day, so if you are looking to make this for a party make it the night before.
