The one and only Tzatziki salad

10 minutes


Serves 5

For a milder flavour, and if you are counting calories,
try using MEVGAL low fat (0% or 2%) yoghurt!


  • 2 pots strained MEVGAL yogurt
  • 2-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp vinegar
  • 6 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped dill and/or a little fresh mint
  • Salt
  • Instructions

  • For the classic tzatziki: wash and dry the cucumber and finely dice.
  • Transfer to a colander, sprinkle with salt to taste. Mix well to coat with salt and leave for a few minutes to drain.
  • Squeeze out all the excess moisture and transfer to a bowl.
  • Add the yogurt, garlic, vinegar and olive oil and stir together with a spoon.
  • Adjust the seasoning and test for acidity, adding a little more vinegar, if necessary.
  • Lastly, add the finely chopped herb/s.
  • Mix together and chill in the fridge.
