Tzatziki (Low Fat Yogurt & Cucumber Dip)

Makes about 2 cups


1 ½ cups plain 2% Greek yogurt (I use Fage)
1 medium seedless cucumber, coarsely grated and squeezed as dry as possible (about 1 cup)
2 small garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, good quality such as Lucini or Colavita
½ teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint, plus a pinch more for garnish


Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix until well combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary (I add about ¼ teaspoon more salt but season to your own taste). Cover and chill until ready to serve. Garnish with a pinch of finely chopped mint if desired.

*Seedless cucumbers are also called English cucumbers or hothouse cucumbers. They are typically wrapped in plastic.
