Refreshing Vegan Cucumber Sauce Recipe - Tzatziki

A nice and refreshing Cucumber Sauce that is amazing on just about anything.

I often put it on my sandwiches, and it can also be used as a dip with vegetables, or whatever you would like

Tzatziki - Cucumber Dip/Sauce
Tzatziki on Baguette w/ cherry tomatoes 

A quick, simple, and very refreshing dip or sandwich topping.

Makes 2 cups

Time: 20 minutes

  • 1 large cucumber 
  • ½ t salt 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 2 t fresh mint, diced 
  • 2 t fresh dill, diced 
  • 1¾ c plain soy yogurt 
  • 2 t lemon juice 
  • 1 T olive oil 


First step is to peel the cucumber, cut it in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds with a spoon. Dice the cucumber, pinch of salt, let sit for 10 minutes, and then drain. 

Add the garlic, mint, dill, and yogurt. Mix well, then stir in the remaining ingredients.

This is a wonderful dip that can be served alongside others, and a large selection of vegetables. breads, and crackers. The cucumber also compliments spicy dishes as a way to cool down the pallet.
