Easy Greek Yogurt Cucumber Sauce


This concoction is a result of my experimental efforts in trying to copy a favorite Greek restaurant’s tzatziki sauce. Serve with gyros, pita bread, chips, or raw veggies.

Original recipe makes 2 cups


1 cup plain yogurt
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 small cucumber – peeled, seeded, and finely chopped
1 green onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
salt and pepper to taste
