Greek Tzatziki

Greek Tzatziki is a crisp and tangy dip made from plain yogurt, cucumbers, garlic, dill, olive oil and lemon juice. Tzatziki is typically eaten cold with a side of warm pita bread, but can also be served as a dressing for a Greek salad. Creamy and refreshing, this dip is simple to make which gives you more time to go about your day!

Notes: You can substitute Greek plain yogurt for plain yogurt if desired. To prevent your dip from being watered down, soak up extra water from the cucumber with a paper towel before adding to mixture.
