Authentic Tzatziki often uses full-fat Greek yogurt and is usually topped with olive oil. This is a lightened up version using fat-free Greek yogurt.

Directions

  • Step 1

    Grate cucumber and crush garlic either with a presser or by hand.

  • Step 2

    Combine everything together in a bowl, add salt and pepper to taste. I use 0.12 teaspoon salt and 0.5 teaspoon pepper. Can be served right away but it tastes best if you let it rest in the fridge for a few hours first. Keep up to two days in an airtight container in the fridge.

     

Serve with pita bread or vegetables.

To make it less watery, sprinkle salt over your grated cucumber and wrap it in a paper towel to soak up excess cucumber juice. You can also deseed your cucumber. 

You can also add one teaspoon per serving of freshly chopped dill and 0.25 teaspoon of a grated lemon. For a more authentic flavor use full-fat Greek yogurt and 0.5 teaspoon olive oil per serving.
