This delicious, healthy, very simple dipping sauce goes really well with my Greek Beef Kebabs.  However, I bet it would be wonderful as a veggie dip or paired with grilled chicken, pork, or lamb.  Or if you’re feeling wild 😉 maybe some pita bread!

Here’s the ingredients you need to gather: plain, non-fat Greek yogurt; English cucumber; garlic; lemon juice; fresh dill; salt; pepper.

Tzatziki Sauce: LittleCajunGirl.comYou’ll need about 1/3 cup of minced cucumber, which is what I got out of a 2-inch long piece of cucumber.  First peel the cucumber.  I love the skin on cucumbers and eat it that way in a salad, but for this you don’t want the skin on it.

Tzatziki Sauce: LittleCajunGirl.comCut it in half lengthwise then seed it.  By “seeding” it, I mean to take a spoon and scrape out the pulp/seeds on the inside.

Tzatziki Sauce: LittleCajunGirl.comThen mince it.  It’s a dipping sauce so you want the pieces to be small (about 1/8-inch in size or smaller).

Tzatziki Sauce:

Using one sprig of fresh dill, snip off the feathery leaves and chop it.  I got a heaping 1/2 tsp out of it (it doesn’t need to be exact).

Tzatziki Sauce: LittleCajunGirl.comStir all ingredients together and refrigerate at least an hour.
