How to Make Homemade Tzatziki in your Blender

Tzatziki is a Mediterranean yogurt sauce you can enjoy atop grilled meat or with pita and fresh veggies for dipping anytime of year. But it’s a great summertime sauce recipe to have in your back pocket. It’s light, refreshing and has an almost magical cooling power thanks to the hydrating cucumber and mint in the recipe.

Add dill, mint, a clove of garlic, and half of a small onion to your blender jar. Cover and pulse until the garlic and onion are minced. Then add plain greek yogurt, lemon juice, 1 small cucumber (peeled, seeded, and quartered), salt, and white pepper. Pulse the ingredients until you reach the desired consistency. Want a thicker sauce? Add a little more greek yogurt. Prefer a thinner tzatziki? Add a little extra lemon juice and cucumber.

Use this tzatziki to top a Mediterranean chicken quinoa bowl or a juicy greek burger hot off the grill this summer. Or simply serve it alongside your favorite Greek olives, sliced cucumber, and fresh pita bread or naan for a no-hassle summertime appetizer to serve a cookouts or pool parties. I think everyone will agree, this versatile sauce is good on just about anything.
