"Drain some low-fat yogurt overnight to make this yummy cucumber dressing. This is a delicious topping for grilled chicken or meat. It's also a great dip for veggies and pita chips."

1 (16 ounce) container
cucumber - peeled, seeded, and grated
fresh lemon juice
chopped fresh parsley
chopped fresh dill
salt and ground black pepper to taste
This is pretty good considering it has no sour cream and breaks down great nutritionally. I used plain Greek yogurt, so there was no need to drain as written in step #1, making this even easier. Only thing that I would change in the future is cutting back on the lemon juice. For us, it was just a little too much lemon flavor, but it did work well on gyros (another recipe on this site), and I definitely will make again.
We've been looking for Tzatziki for awhile the was close to our favorite Greek restaurant. This one is amazing! We also used the Greek Yogurt so we didn't have to wait for it to drain. Definitely tastes better the second day after it has time to marinate in the fridge.
I added 1 TBSP orange blossom honey and half a lemon squeezed along with 2 TBSP Tahini sauce. It tasted amazing!! Thanks for posting this!!
