Tzatziki: Savory Greek Yogurt Sauce


Serves 2 ½ cups

Total Time: 

Yogurt is not just for breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, yogurt is great as a thickening protein source in a smoothie or as a binder for a bowl of fruit, but yogurt is also great as a savory ingredient. Savory tzatziki is a tangy Greek sauce for meat, rice, and bread. It’s a better addition on sandwiches than soy-based sandwich spreads. And it has much more flavor. Enjoy.


  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 4″-5″ cucumber, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • 3 tablespoons dill, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons mint, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Mix all ingredients. Serve fresh. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to one week.
