  • 1 cup Greek yogurt, 0%
  • 1 large cucumber, seeded and finely grated*
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Add all of the prepared ingredients to a bowl and whisk together.  Transfer to a food-safe container with a tight fitting lid.
  • Refrigerate for one to two hours for best results.


*Once you have shredded the cucumber, squeeze as much of the liquid out of the cucumber as you possibly can.  Otherwise, your sauce will be too watery.
If the sauce becomes watery after refrigerating, in spite of the squeezed cucumber, simple whisk the sauce again to incorporate the water that may have settled on top of the sauce.
