Tzatziki Sauce
Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: Mediterranean
This quick and easy cucumber sauce is perfect for vegetable fritters and Mediterranean dishes.
  • ½ cucumber, sliced vertically, seeded and grated
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • 6 Tbs. Greek yogurt
  • 1 green onion, white and green parts, chopped fine
  • 1 Tbs. chopped parsley (or dill, or mint or cilantro)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Use medium size grate on cucumber. Place the grated cucumber in a colander in the sink and sprinkle with a little salt. Let drain for 10 minutes. (Or squeeze the grated cucumber with a paper towel to keep sauce from being too runny.)
  2. Remove cucumber to bowl and stir in the remaining sauce ingredients. Refrigerate for 2 hours to let flavors blend. Makes about 1 cup. Double recipe, if desired.
