- 1 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 medium cucumber (fresh)
- 2 cloves of garlic (grated)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh mint (chopped)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Prepare the cucumber by peeling and chopping it into small pieces. If the cucumber is large and has many seeds, you can remove them before chopping.
- Place the chopped cucumbers in a colander and sprinkle them with salt. Let them sit for a few minutes to release excess juice. Then squeeze the cucumbers to remove as much moisture as possible.
- In a bowl, mix the Greek yogurt, grated garlic, lemon juice, chopped mint, and olive oil. Thoroughly combine the ingredients.
- Add the drained cucumbers to the bowl with the remaining ingredients. Gently mix until the ingredients are well combined.
- Season the tzatziki sauce with salt and pepper to taste. You can also add more lemon juice or mint if desired.
- Transfer the prepared tzatziki sauce to the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
- After this time, your keto Tzatziki is ready to serve! You can use it as a dip for vegetables, a marinade for meat, or as an accompaniment to meat-based dishes.
