Do you ever get a craving for something and you have to have it that second? That’s what always happens to me with Tzatziki dip! Luckily I have the best AND easiest Tzatziki recipe ever for you today!
This recipe doesn’t really require any actual cooking, just some chopping and stirring, which is obviously my kind of recipe. And as usual, Jude and Ezra had to help me, which really is my favorite thing ever. We started this recipe by heading to the garden to pick some cucumbers! The recipe calls for seedless, but you can definitely just cut around the seeds in a regular cucumber.
But back to the dip. The main ingredient in this Tzatziki dip is FAGE Total Plain Greek yogurt. Add in all your cucumbers, a little seasoning, and you’re pretty much done!
I love cooking with FAGE Total because it has no added sugar (yay!), is protein-rich (0% and 2% have 23 grams per cup and 5% has 20 grams per cup), and it comes in 0%, 2%, and 5%, so there’s an option for everyone!
So here’s how easy this recipe is.
2 cups FAGE Total Plain 0% Greek yogurt (I just use the entire 17.6 oz container)
1 cup diced seedless cucumber
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Salt and pepper to taste
In a bowl, combine yogurt, cucumbers, lemon juice, garlic, and dill. Stir until well incorporated. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. You can serve immediately or chill!
This will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. But ours never lasts that long.
We love to dip warmed pita bread, veggies, or pita chips in the dip. But our favorite is grilling some steak or chicken and then making homemade gyro sandwiches! Top pita bread with meat, lettuce, tomatoes, and Tzatziki dip and you’re ready to go!
