Tasting the tzatziki sauce is a must when you visit Greece and you want to try the greek cuisine. You can eat it as a spread on a slice of bread, as a sauce when you eat pork, and of course there is always tzatziki sauce in the famous greek souvlaki. It’s refreshing, healthy, delicious, and the best part is that it’s very simple to do!

Tzatziki sauce


500g of strained yogurt

1 cucumber

2 grated cloves of garlic (you can use one if you want a lighter taste)

1/4 of a cup extra virgin olive oil

1-2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar

a pinch of salt




  1. Pour in a blender the olive oil and grated garlic and blend until combined.
  2. Remove the skin and the seeds of the cucumber and grate it into a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and leave aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Wrap the grated cucumber in a towel and squeeze, in order to get rid of the excess water.
  4. In a bowl, add the cucumber, the blended garlic and olive oil, the yogurt, the vinegar, a pinch of salt and blend well, until the ingredients are combined. Store the tzatziki sauce in the fridge and always serve cold.
