Silly Goose Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 cucumber (recommend English cucumber)

  • 2c plain Greek yogurt

  • 2-3tbsp chopped dill

  • 2tbsp lemon juice

  • 1-2tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 2-3 tsp minced garlic

  • 1/2tsp salt

  • 1/4-1/2tsp cracked pepper

Optional ingredient:

  • 1-2tbsp chopped mint


Grate cucumber and squeeze out excess liquid. Add to medium size bowl. Stir in Greek yogurt. Add lemon juice, olive oil, and minced garlic. Stir in freshly chopped dill. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill in fridge until ready to serve (ideally make a few hours before serving to allow flavors to fully develop.

Tips from your Top Goose

  • I use English cucumbers for this recipe because they have less (and smaller seeds), so you don't have to worry about removing the seeds. Also the meat of the cucumber is firmer and won't be soggy in your sauce/dip.

  • If you choose to add the mint, I recommend adding it slowly and tasting as you go. It can become overpowering quickly.

  • To make a chunkier sauce or dip, reserve a portion of the cucumber and finely dice it up, stirring it in with the rest of the ingredients.

  • If you don't have one, I recommend getting a grater like this one that has the measured container attachment - helps you keep track of your measurements but even better, NO MESS to clean up and you can stick the top on any leftovers to save in the fridge. I absolutely love mine.
