Tzaziki Dip Mix

Why is it that if something sounds exotic it's more expensive? Tzaziki is a simple Greek dip made with yogurt, cucumbers and dill but a tiny little tub at the grocery store is always at least $4. It is often used as a topping for falafels, souvlaki, roasted potatoes and other Greek dishes.

Tzaziki Dip Mix Single Use

1 teaspoon dill
½ teaspoon garlic flakes
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dried mint
¼ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon dried lemon peel

Big Batch (makes 6 uses)

2 tablespoons dill
1 tablespoon dried garlic flakes
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon dried mint
1 ½ teaspoons pepper
1 ½ teaspoons dried lemon peel

What else you’ll need

1 cup plain yogurt
½ cucumber, diced or shredded
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice

Combine 2 teaspoons of mix with yogurt, cucumber, oil and lemon juice and stir well. I diced my cucumber on the first test run of this mix and shredded it on the second. Either way was fine.

It was great on our souvlaki on a pita, although most of our dips end up becoming baked potato toppings as well.
