Tasty Tzatziki Sauce

Thick tangy Greek yogurt combined with crisp and fresh cucumber and strong lemon and dill. It is a full-flavored dip or sauce, perfect for these meatball bites!
Prep Time5 mins


  • 1 cucumber skin removed, ends removed, finely diced
  • 2 cups whole-fat Greek yogurt
  • 3 cloves of garlic finely minced
  • 1 large handful of fresh dill minced
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt add as needed


  • Dice up the cucumber (without seeds, without skin, without ends). This should be about 1 cup.
  • Add to the Greek yogurt and mix.
  • Next add the remaining ingredients - garlic, dill, lemon juice and salt. Mix thoroughly and taste.
  • Add salt if needed.
  • Cover and let the ingredients sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but best an hour or more. The flavors will blend and strengthen.


This is a recipe that is delicious for grilled lamb, chicken, gyro meat, dipping sauce for veggies or pita bread. It is versatile and tastes so much fresher than plain 'ol ranch!
