Cucumber, Garlic, Greek Yogurt, oh MY! This Garlic Tzatziki is a condiment you could use on anything. But it is perfectly paired with my Lamb Burgers or Saffron Chicken if you need a jumping-off point.
Eat it straight on pita chips. Or top any burger with it to make it Greek! Whatever you do with it make it a staple in your pantry. You could even use it as the dressing on my Greek Chicken Salad.
Making your own fresh Tzatziki is so easy and much more satisfying than anything you can buy in the store. You just need a tub of greek yogurt, a cucumber, a little red onion, and garlic, and you're on your way! Add some salt, pepper, and greek seasoning and your set.
Ingredients needed for Garlic Tzatziki
- Greek Yogurt
- English Cucumber
- Red Onion
- Greek Seasoning
I like to make life easy and grate all of the veggies on a cheese grater. You can actually combine them all into one pile and then squeeze all the water out of them. That is the key to ensuring your tzatziki doesn't get too watery.
Then combine all the ingredients into a bowl and mix. Taste and adjust the seasonings to your liking. I like it to be a little salty, but use the greek seasoning to give it the authentic flavors.
This greek seasoning is my favorite. I use it to season my chicken and lamb burgers. It is a great all-purpose, used together with some fresh oregano or dill it really bolsters the flavor.
