Tzatziki, a creamy dip using thick Greek yogurt, cucumbers and dill is a staple on the table of any Greek household! Guess who’s gonna make it guilt free using 0% Greek yogurt and limited olive oil to keep fat and calories low. This super easy recipe is ready in 5 minutes. Fantastic with grilled or oven roasted lamb, or have you tried our KOFTA and GREEK SALAD? (Of course! Both recipes drastically lower in fat and sodium than traditional preparation!) Tzatziki is also delicious as a high protein snack dip with veggie sticks and maybe a lil pita bread too!
16 oz 0% strained Greek yogurt
3/4 of large cucumber
2 tsp finely diced garlic
2 Tbsp finely diced fresh dill
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp fresh black pepper

Grate cucumber on a medium size grater. Then place grated cucumber in a strainer and press out the excess liquid from the cucumber. If you do not do this, Tzatziki will become watery. Add the Greek Yogurt and cucumber to a large mixing bowl. Throw in diced garlic and dill. Mix well. Slowly stir in the olive oil and seasonings. Refrigerate for 30 minutes prior to serving.
