Tzatziki is typically made with Greek yogurt, which is a thicker yogurt as compared to the regular one. But feel free to use any yogurt that you like. If your yogurt isn’t thick to begin with, be sure to squeeze out the extra juice from the grated cucumber.

I make this dip a lot with my homemade yogurt that I make in my pressure cooker, Instant Pot.  The consistency of my homemade yogurt is in between of a greek yogurt and regular one.   So, I reduce the liquid from the cucumbers, by squeezing out some of the juices from the grated cucumbers using two paper towels.

This is how simple it is to put it together:

Mediterranean / Greek Feast:

I always make this easy Tzatziki sauce whenever I make Chicken Shawarma or Grilled Lamb Chops. I make a Greek salad and hummus, get some store-bought Pita bread and we enjoy our Greek Feast!  My kids love dipping their Shawarma gyro wrap in the Tzatziki!
