Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki Sauce

This delicious condiment can be served alongside many Mediterranean dishes such as falafel or served on a Mediterranean platter with vegetables, olives, crackers, and hummus for a quick snack or fun meal.

Makes: 2 ½ cups


  • 2 cups grated cucumber (from about 1 medium cucumber). No peeling or seeding is necessary.
  • 1 ½ cups plain Greek-style plant-based yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint and/or dill
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 medium clove garlic, pressed or minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Working with a handful at a time, squeeze the grated cucumber over the sink to remove excess moisture. Transfer the squeezed cucumber to a serving bowl, and repeat until all of the cucumber is drained.
  • Mix in the yogurt, olive oil, herbs, lemon juice, garlic, and salt to the bowl. Stir well and let rest for 5 -10 minutes. Taste and add additional chopped fresh herbs, lemon juice, and/or salt, to taste.
  • Chill until serving.
