Homemade Tzatziki

A creamy, herb filled sauce that can transform any meal from basic to brilliant. 

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: NA
Servings: 6


3/4 cup greek yoghurt

1 Lebanese cucumber, peeled, finely chopped

¼ cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped

2 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped, plus extra to serve

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 tsp lime juice

Salt and pepper, to season

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Mix yoghurt, cucumber, mint, dill, garlic and lime juice in a small bowl until combined. Season to taste. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with extra dill.


Tzatziki can be served as a dip with raw cut vegetables and bread, or with Wilted Kale and Roasted Chickpeas, Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges or Zucchini Fritters. You can also serve it as a sauce for roasted meats and vegetables, or as a spread for wraps and sandwiches. 

Use kefir instead of Greek yoghurt to increase your probiotic intake.
