  • 1 whole - cucumber
  • 16 ounces - Greek yogurt, (or 2 of the individual 7 oz. containers)
  • 2 tablespoons - lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons - finely minced garlic, about 1 large clove
  • 1 tablespoons - finely chopped fresh dill, or 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 2 teaspoons - apple cider vinegar, white vinegar can be substituted
  • 2 - crumbled feta
  • 1 teaspoons - salt*, or to taste
  • Directions:

    1. Cut cucumber in half, lengthwise. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds then discard them. Grate cucumber. Scatter grated cucumber over a clean dishcloth (or paper towels). Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Then let sit at least 10 minutes. Then, gather up the corners of the dishcloth and squeeze as much liquid from grated cucumber as possible.

    2. In a medium bowl, combine squeezed cucumber with yogurt, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, chopped dill, garlic and the feta cheese. Season with salt to taste (I only use about 1/2 teaspoon, and I think it is plenty.)

    Brief Description

    Greek cucumber yogurt dip! Traditional tzatziki does not have feta in it, but once I tried this recipe, I don't know why it was ever left out. If you don't like the strong taste though, just leave it out. The dip is still great.

    Main Ingredient:

    Greek yogurt, cucumbers

    Cuisine:  American

    Prep Time: 20 min


    If you can let this sit 2-4 hours, or even overnight, the flavors meld and get stronger.
