GREEK TZATZIKI SAUCE — Greek yogurt, cucumber, dill and seasonings come together in this classic homemade tzatziki sauce.
We have a favorite Greek restaurant in town (truthfully, it’s about the only Greek restaurant in town) and we love the tzatziki sauce. This homemade Greek Tzatziki Sauce comes pretty close to what we get at the restaurant.
Tzatziki sauce is a big favorite of my youngest, who is a huge fan of cucumbers dipped in Ranch dressing. So if you’re a fan of Cucumber Ranch dressing, this sauce will be right up your alley!
We like to use it in gyros, but it’s also good as a vegetable and chip dip. You can even thin it out with a bit of milk and use it as a salad dressing.
It’s a great accompaniment to any Greek meal. I highly recommend it alongside my Greek Turkey Meatballs. And don’t be surprised if you catch me eating it with a spoon.
If you prefer a slightly smoother dip, you can grate your cucumbers rather than chopping them.
And it really doesn’t matter much whether or not you peel the cucumbers.I find it adds a bit of color to leave the peel on, so that’s what I do.
It can be tricky to find Greek seasoning at your grocery store, so if you need to make your own, I recommend this recipe.
Be sure to save this Greek Tzatziki Sauce recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.

Who Dished It Up First: Adapted from allrecipes.com
We love Tzatziki sauce as well. It is such a great, versatile condiment. I love the idea of adding some rice wine vinegar to it. I also serve it along baked potatoes instead of butter and sour cream and it is delicious :o)
This looks so good… I buy a lot of Tzatziki sauce for my pita chips.
I love Tzatziki and all the yummy Greek food that goes with it 🙂
This looks great. What is “Greek Seasoning?”
I’m sure I could just eat this by the spoonful! Yummy.
Wonderful on baked potatoes. Fish too.
