Tzatziki Recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 150g Greek yoghurt

  • 1/2 cucumber

  • 1 crushed garlic cloves

  • 1 tbsp olive oil or rapeseed oil

  • 1 tsp lemon juice (or white wine vinegar)

  • 1 tsp chopped mint

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • Pepper to taste


  • Peel cucumber, cut in half lengthways and de-seed using a teaspoon, then coarsely grate.

  • Put grated cucumber into a sieve suspended over a bowl, sprinkle over 1/2 tsp of salt and mix through. Place a plate on top of cucumber and allow cucumber to drain for approximately 1 hour, or until water stops dripping (whichever is first).

  • Combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly.

  • The flavours combine better if given time so I prefer to leave it in a sealed container in the refrigerator overnight.

  • Check for seasoning and serve with lamb kebabs.
