- It's like tzatziki but wayyyyy easier to make. Because you don't have to grate the cucumbers and then let them sit with salt to draw out the water, and then remove the excess water, and then add them to the sauce. This yogurt sauce is a breeze compared to tzatziki. It has all the same flavors of tzatziki but takes a fraction of the time to make!
- It adds a little something extra to your favorite dishes! Whether it's Greek quesadillas, falafel burgers, Greek turkey burgers, chickpea gyros or Mediterranean potato wedges - this sauce is going to take your most popular meals to the next level.
- It's a healthy alternative to ranch dressing. As most kids do, my toddler has discovered a fond love for ranch dressing. But if I call this yogurt sauce "ranch", I can get her to eat this sauce with her carrots and cucumbers! It's got a bit more of a tang that classic ranch dressing but it has a very similar look and texture - and the best part is that you know exactly what's in it!
Add sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, and fresh chopped dill along with a large pinch of salt and pepper to a small bowl.
Stir to combine and season to taste with salt.

- Don't use fat free yogurt in this recipe! This recipe doesn't have any fat in it, so using full fat Greek yogurt or sour cream is very necessary. The fat in the yogurt is also going to balance out the acid from the lemon juice.
- To make this sauce a little richer and creamier, feel free to add a couple tablespoons of olive oil. I like a nice tangy sauce but the addition of olive oil is going to give this sauce a bit more of a velvety texture and mellow out the tang a bit.
- To make this sauce vegan, just use vegan yogurt or sour cream! Again, try to find a brand that is NOT fat free or low fat. Fat = flavor. And we want all the flavor we can get with this simple sauce!
- This sauce can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. It will begin to separate as it sits. Before serving each time, give it a quick stir and season to taste with salt!
