Square Roots' Ultimate Tzatziki Dip with Dill

Perfect for picnics or an anytime healthy snack, tzatziki is bright, cool, and refreshing thanks to handfuls of fresh dill. Serve alongside grilled proteins and veggies, use as a dip for literally anything (ie. french fries, pita), or spread onto sandwiches and wraps.

Ingredients
  • 1 pack of Square Roots Dill, finely chopped

  • 1 medium-sized cucumber

  • 1 ½ cups plain Greek yogurt

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced or finely grated

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ½ tsp black pepper

Yield: makes 2 cups

Instructions
  1. Lengthwise, cut the cucumber in half and use a spoon to scrape out the seeds.

  2. Grate the cucumber using a box grater. If unavailable, finely chop with a chef’s knife.

  3. Critical step! One handful at a time, lightly squeeze the grated cucumber in a paper or cloth towel over the sink to remove excess moisture. Transfer to a serving bowl, and repeat with the remaining cucumber.

  4. Add the yogurt, olive oil, dill, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper to the bowl. Stir to blend.

  5. Allow the mixture to rest for five minutes to let the flavors steep and pop. Taste and adjust with more dill, lemon, salt, or garlic if needed.

  6. Serve immediately or chill in the fridge for later use.

Next-Level Tips
  • Use dairy-free plain yogurt for a vegan option.

  • Add more cucumber, lemon juice, and olive oil to the mix for a still-flavorful but thinner, drizzly, dressing.

  • Add Square Roots Parsley or Basil for a new, flavorful spin.
