Homemade Tzatziki Sauce is the perfect accompaniment to any Greek meal, or as a dipper for pita chips. Fresh dill is key to this flavorful dip!
What makes a great Tzatziki Sauce?
- Greek yogurt
- fresh garlic
- fresh dill
- fresh lemon juice
- salt and pepper
- olive oil
See? Simple. But so tasty, and perfect in my Greek Cauliflower Rice Bowls with Chicken. It basically MAKES the Greek bowls, because duh….Greek plus Tzatziki.
I recommend making the Tzatziki Sauce several hours in advance to get those flavors melding together.
Fresh Pita Chips? Yay or Nay?
I say YAY. If you want to skip the Greek Bowls, you could just make pita chips and get to dipping. All you do is 1) take fresh pita bread, 2) brush olive oil all over them, 3) season with paprika, salt, pepper (or whatever you like), and 4) bake.
You won’t regret it, I promise.

Homemade Tzatziki Sauce
A simple Greek sauce that's both easy and healthy! It's the highlight of my Greek Bowls!
- 10 oz. plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 medium English cucumber - seeds removed and diced
- 1 clove garlic - minced
- 1 Tablespoon fresh dill
- 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- salt and pepper - to taste
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil - drizzle on to serve
De-seed the cucumber, and dice. Add to mixing bowl, with remaining ingredients. Mix well.
Refrigerate at least an hour before serving so flavors absorb. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil.
This Tzatziki Sauce is great on top of Greek bowls, or used as a dipping sauce for veggies and pita chips.
