Serving Suggestions


  • This tzatziki is a great Greek dish that goes perfectly with lamb.
  • It has simple fresh flavours that cut oily food with a nice acidic finish.
  • It works as a great dip with crudites and can also be great poured over lamb or chicken kebabs.
  • If this recipe is a little too wet you can strain it over a bowl in some clean muslin or a new thin dishclothåÊthat has been rinsed in clean water.
  • I find if the Tzatziki is best left overnight for the garlic flavours to develop.
