Tzatziki, Tsaziki, Tζατζίκι – Cacık

3 comments Jun 7th, 2010 | By | Category: Dips, Recipes

The weather is getting warmer and it is time to come up with some light dishes. Besides that I discovered that I had left out one of the Greek classics. The Tzaziki. Many of you will say now “well that just sounds like the Turkish Cacik!” And I would agree.
This Yogurt sauce is the perfect dip but also is perfect for barbecue. It also goes well with fried food like calamari.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • a cup of Greek yogurt (Olympos)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • half a cucumber
  • some dill
  • some olive oil
  • Salt an pepper


Peel the cucumber, then remove the soft inside with a spoon. Shred the cucumber into a bowl.

Chop up the garlic then crush ist with the flat side of a big kitchen knife. Use some sea salt to turn it into a paste while crushing it.Put it into a bowl and bix it with olive oil and some pepper.

Now add the chopped dill and the yogurt. Now mix this sauce with the cucumber.

Fridge and serve chilled.
