Tzatziki Sauce


Makes about 3 cups

Tzatziki is a cool, creamy sauce that pairs well with just about anything. Try it with greens in a salad, on wraps and sandwiches, or as a dip for grilled, fried, or sautéed chicken.


  • 2½ cups Greek yogurt

  • 1 large cucumber, halved horizontally, seeds removed, and grated

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

  • 1½ teaspoons white wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt, to taste

  • Pepper, to taste


Transfer the grated cucumber to a strainer and sprinkle with salt. Let rest for 10 minutes to extract moisture. In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, cucumber, garlic, mint, vinegar, and olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.
