Garden Fresh Recipes


Basic tzatziki proportions are easy to follow. You can add or subtract any of the ingredients to suit you own taste.


  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1 tbsp. fresh dill
  • 1 English cucumber, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Mix together well and allow to stand for a few hours to blend flavours.

I recommend using Greek yogurt for your tzatziki because it is thick. If you use regular yogurt, you will need to strain it through cheesecloth – messy and time consuming. Some people also add a tablespoon of mint to their tzatziki. 

If you use regular cucumber, you should seed it and draw the water out by sprinkling it with a tablespoon of salt and leaving it sit for 30 minutes before adding to your tzatziki.
