Cucumber Yogurt Salad (Tzatziki)

Cucumber Yogurt Salad (Tzatziki)
  • Meal

    Side Dish

  • Cusine



2 cucumbers, peeled, quartered lengthwise, then sliced

Plain yogurt, about 1 cup

1 teaspoon dried dill, or a couple of teaspoons of fresh dill

Sprinkling of salt and pepper


First taste the cucumbers to make sure that they are not bitter. Depending on the variety of cucumber you are using, and many other factors, you may find a cucumber that is distinctly bitter in taste. If this happens, soak the cucumber slices in salted water for half an hour, or longer, until the bitterness is reduced, then rinse and drain before using. To make the salad, simply gently mix together the ingredients. Salt and pepper to taste.
