Homemade tzaziki

I loooove tzaziki. I used to eat it as a kid all the time with some fresh bread, but you can also serve it as a dip with some crackers or as a side dip during dinner (with tacos, vegetarian gyros, chili)

serves: 1 bowl
prep time:
 5 min
cook time: 5 min
total time: 10 min


  • 500 grams of good quality Greek yoghurt (not Greek-style yoghurt), or vegan yoghurt
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced finely
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • bunch of fresh mint
  • 1 tbsp chili flakes
  • pinch of sea salt
  • Optional: bunch of fresh dill, olives


Simply mix all these ingredients in a bowl and sprinkle with some olive oil, salt and chili flakes. Leave overnight for a more flavoursome dip.
