This is a great simple dressing that I served with the portobello pitas. I have no idea if this version is truly authentic but it tastes great.
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 garlic clove, grated
- 1/3 large English cucumber, peeled and diced
- 1 tbsp fresh dill
- salt and pepper to taste
Peel and dice the cucumber. Salt generously and allow them to sit; the salt will pull off some of the excess liquid. Combine the ingredients and mix well. If you don’t like the strong yogurt taste, you could use half sour cream and half yogurt.

Hey that’s an imposter! Kidding, looks great to me.
I live in dread that someone might say, “there is no way that is how my family would have fixed that!” It’s like my reaction to someone saying that a true Southerner would steam green beans or the like. Sacrilegious! It probably is an imposter but it tastes awesome! 🙂
I love tzatziki sauce! So good with just about anything. I drain the yogurt off in a cheesecloth and it makes it extra thick…yum!
I’ll have to try out the cheesecloth idea…
