I believe my favorite part of summer food is all the fresh vegetables that concoct into the most amazing salads! Tzatziki is a staple in my home all summer long. I grew up eating it with my meat and fish the way many Americans put ketchup on theirs. Hah! Mine is definitely better!!

Make up a batch and keep it in the fridge for a few days. Have it on your kabobs, grilled chicken, roasted eggplant, lamb, or veggie kabobs. We always had it on Kibbeh, a Syrian/Lebanese meat dish made of ground lamb and bulgar wheat, stuffed with pine nuts and other yummy things.


  • Greek Yogurt – 2 cups, whole milk Greek yogurt
  • Cucumber – 1 ½ cups skin-on, cubed
  • Mint – 2 tablespoons, fresh chopped
  • Garlic – 1 clove, crushed
  • Lemon juice – 2 tablespoons
  • Olive oil – 1 tablespoon


Simply mix the prepared ingredients together, and store in an airtight container in the fridge!




  1. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Miss Pea! I could eat my weight in Tzatzki (did I spell it wrong…duh, yeah!). All these fresh beautiful ingredients make me happy. And, w/some grilled cheeeekin…oh yeah!! xo
