I am going to admit something that might just be Earth shattering, I am not a fan of cucumbers. Strange, I know, especially since I love these. If a cucumber harbors in my salad, I will pick it out like a 3 year old child. So it is quite bizarre that I like this dip.
Tzatziki is a Greek Yogurt dip with cucumbers and dill. It is amazing. So fresh and heathy for you(another shocker). I like my Tzatziki really garlicky and dill-y. You know the kind of dip that you need a breath mint after eating….yeppers, this is that kind! I always serve mine with salted pita chips.
So even if you are a cucumber hater like I am, I am sure you will love this dip!
- 1½ English or hothouse cucumbers, shredded
- 1 16oz. container Greek yogurt (I use fat free)
- ¼ cup sour cream (I use fat free)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon coarse Kosher salt
- ⅛ teaspoon pepper
- 1½ Tablespoons dill ( I use Gourmet Garden Dill Herb Blend)
- Shred cucumbers with a box grader over a colander and allow for the liquid to drain out. Keep in the colander in the sink.
- In a medium bowl mix the yogurt, sour cream, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, salt/pepper and dill.
- Squeeze the as much excess liquid from the cucumbers as you can.
- Stir the cucumber into the dip.
- Cover and store in the refrigerator.
