Tzatziki sauce is a Greek classic, a refreshing cucumber-yogurt sauce that’s both condiment and dip. In this recipe the yogurt isn’t strained, so the sauce is a bit more fluid than the standard version. Serve it as a dip with vegetable crudités and pita triangles, with poached seafood, or on grilled salmon burgers.

What to buy: Greek yogurt has less whey than regular yogurt, so it’s thick and creamy. We like the Fage brand.

This recipe was part of our feature on Salmon Burgers and 5 Tasty Ways to Top Them.

Instructions

  1. 1Grate the cucumber on the large holes of a box grater. Run a knife over the grated cucumber until it’s fine in texture, but not totally minced. Mound the cucumber in the center of a clean kitchen towel, then twist the towel to squeeze out as much moisture as you can.
  2. 2Place the cucumber in a medium bowl. Add the yogurt, herbs, lemon juice, garlic, and cumin, season with salt and pepper, and mix well. Refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight to meld the flavors before serving.
