Tzatziki Sauce

For the longest time the only sauce I liked on pita was hummus. In fact, I would often ask the server to hold the tzatziki sauce on my gyros. I’m not sure why. Maybe I just had a bad batch one time, because now, I can’t get enough of the stuff. It’s creamy, it’s tangy, it’s full of garlic and dill. It’s a cool, bright dip that is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Speaking of favorites, who else has been binge watching House of Cards?! How about that beginning?! I was not expecting that. For those of you that haven’t started watching it yet, I won’t spoil it for you but wow. Just wow. We’re about halfway through the season already and I’m loving it more than the first season.

And if you have Netflix and are binge watching this show or any other (I totally watch Friday Night Lights every day during Kellan’s naps), you’ve got to have some snacks to go along with it and this tzatziki sauce and some pita is perfect. Plus you don’t feel quite as quilty eating it during the whole binge watching session because it’s Greek yogurt so it has to be good for you right?


Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

Makes 2 cups


  • 1 1/2 cups greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup minced cucumber
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper



Combine all ingredients together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.


Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.


Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 3 days.


Note: Depending on the brand of your yogurt you may want to add some lemon juice to give it a bit more tang, about 2 teaspoons. I've used Fage and the Whole Foods brand and I didn't feel like either needed lemon juice.
