Easiest ever Tzatziki

My easiest ever tzatziki, because chip and dip doesn't need to be hard.

Sometimes you want something easy, quick and low effort. Be it for a snack, maybe you've decided to bring something to a party or maybe you're hosting yourself.

Regardless, my easy Tzatziki is a fresh and simple dip, perfect with some pitta to start off a meal or as a delicious topper for lamb burgers, gyros or kebabs. A delicious way to transport you back to lazy holidays in the med, with chip, dip and a cold beer.

I always get asked for this recipe, and it really is so simple..


Prep Time : 15 mins

Serves : 5

Difficulty : Easy

1 500gr tub of Greek yoghurt

1/2 cucumber

2 tablespoons dried mint

Olive Oil


1 - Grate the cucumber on the fine grater then drain off as much of the water as possible.

2 - Place yoghurt into the bowl and then add the cucumber, a pinch of salt and mint. Mix well.

3 - Set aside and before serving drizzle some olive oil on top and a sprinkling of mint.

Great with Warm pitta breads and some lemon.


With a kick - Add half a grated chilli.

With some spice - Add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.

For the luxury lovers - drizzle some balsamic glaze on top with the olive oil.

Either way - scoff the whole thing up!!
