Cucumbers in Tzatziki

You can make tzatziki and put it literally on anything.  It’s great on sandwiches, on the side with veggies, or even used like a salad dressing.  I used to love this sauce and make it all the time, but I kind of forgot about it.  I made it again recently and fell in love all over again.  I really love lemons and the freshness of squeezed lemons- pair that with the creaminess of yogurt and I’m falling head over heels.

This is a really simple recipe that will jazz up whatever you decide to make it with.

Cucumbers in Tzatziki


  • 2 large cucumbers, diced thinly
  • 2 cups plan greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO
  • 1 tablespoon chopped, fresh dill
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • s&p to taste


  • In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, EVOO, dill, garlic, s&p.  Mix to combine.  Add sliced cucumbers and stir together.  Serve and enjoy!
