Best Tzatziki recipe

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

This fantastic tzatziki recipe is packed with loads of yummy flavours - garlic, olive oil, white wine vinegar and rich Greek yoghurt. Serve it with veggie sticks or tortilla chips or crisps.


  • 500g strained full fat yoghurt
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 3 fat garlic cloves
  • 4 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar

  1. Strain the liquid from the yoghurt through a cheesecloth. Slice the cucumber in half, scrape out the seeds with a spoon then grate the flesh. Press into a sieve to remove excess water.
