Tzatziki is awesome not only because it tastes good, but you can serve it with anything. It’s good as meze, in gyros, as a salad or as a side-dish.


  • Prep: ~30 mins.
  • Cook: ~30 mins.
  • Serves: 10

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 sour cream
  • 2 spoons garlic powder
  • 1 spoon oregano
  • 1 spoon mint
  • 1 pinch dill (optional)
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • salt

Step 1

Since I can't find galaktokrema anywhere (the proper ingredient for tzatziki), I had to improvise. Mix the sour cream and yogurt (drain the yogurt first!) in a bowl until it forms a creamy homogeneous mass.


Step 2

Take a big cucumber and skin it, then grate it. Using a paper towel, drain as much water as you can. We don't want water ruining our creamy texture.


Step 3

Mix it with the sour cream and yogurt, and then add garlic, salt, olive oil and the spices to taste. Stick it in your fridge for an hour or so.


Step 4
