D-I-Y Tzatziki

D-I-Y Tzatziki

Tzatziki is just one of those fridge staples – spread, dip, dollop, spoon. Yum!

  • Grate the cucumber onto a clean towel or some paper towel. Allow any excess liquid to drain out. Add your drained cucumber to some yoghurt.
  • Peel and grate the garlic. If you prefer cooked garlic, sauté the garlic in a pan until fragrant – otherwise add the grated garlic as is.
  • Season the tzatziki with salt, pepper, lemon juice and olive oil. Add some chopped mint too, if mint is your thing.


It's important to drain the liquid from the cucumber as any liquid will make the tzatziki watery and not so lekker – leading to expiration earlier than usual.
