Dairy-Free Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki is an authentic Greek sauce often known for being smothered on gyros. The flavors of yogurt, cucumber, dill and garlic all come together perfectly.


  • 1 cup of plain coconut yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 small cucumber peeled and deseeded
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh dill
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Olive oil


  1. In a food processor, add cucumber, garlic, lemon juice and dill. Process until well blended.
  2. Put cucumber mixture into a fine mesh strainer and allow excess liquid to drain (about 20 mins).
  3. In a bowl, add mixture to yogurt. Add salt and pepper to taste, and stir everything together (this needs a good amount of salt, so taste as you add).
  4. Place in the refrigerator for at least two hours before serving to allow flavors to blend.
  5. Before serving, drizzle olive oil over the top.
