Tzatziki Inspired Cucumber Salad

You can blend it all together to make a sauce to put on beef or lamb, or eat it on its own!

I used to love getting gyros from Greek food carts. It was seriously one of my main pleasures in life for a while there.

My favorite part was the tzatziki sauce over that spicy beef or lamb. While I can’t have the bread any more, I can still have the flavors! I like to eat this as a salad, but you can blend it up or chop your cucumbers much smaller to use it as a sauce.

Cut up cucumbers - I like mine pretty big but you can make them any size you like!

  1. Chop up your cucumbers into slices 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick, then quarter the slices into wedges.
  2. Crush dill and garlic, and combine with cucumbers and salt. Mix well.
  3. Pour yogurt over the cucumber mixture and combine. Let set in the refrigerator a few hours so the flavors will meld together. It may separate a little bit, just stir to recombine.
