Recipe By Mike Johnston, Savory Spice founder

This sauce has a strong garlic flavor that is perfect for pairing with Greek or Middle Eastern dishes.

Serving Suggestions

Serve chilled on gyros or our Za'Atar Spiced Meatballs or Sweet Green Pea Falafel. Use as a dressing for our Grilled Greek Salad with Dill Quinoa. Recipe easily doubles.

Recipe Notes

*Use Greek yogurt for a thicker, more authentic option; avoid low-fat or fat-free yogurts. To make a dairy-free version use a dairy-free yogurt and milk alternative. Adding buttermilk or milk yields a thinner, dressing-like sauce.

Vegan: Substitute yogurt and milk with dairy-free products.

Ingredients

1 cups plain yogurt*

2 Tbsp. buttermilk or milk (optional)*

1 tsp. olive oil

1 tsp. lemon juice

1/2 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and minced
