This cool, creamy yogurt condiment can be used as a dip for crudite, or in place of sour cream as a topping for cold soups, such as borscht.

  • Yield: Makes 1 1/2 cups

Source: Martha Stewart Living, June 2008


  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and grated (3/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
  • 1/2 small garlic clove, minced (1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill


  1. Toss cucumber with salt in a colander, and let drain for 20 minutes. Press lightly to extract excess water, then transfer cucumber to a medium bowl. Stir in yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, and dill. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour (or up to 1 day).

Cook's Note

Make the tzatziki up to a week before you use it.
