The Sunday Cookbook: Dairy-Free Tzatziki Sauce
Updated: Aug 13
The perfect company for your Greek-inspired meals! Our tzatziki recipe has all the same classic flavors, just made without dairy!
Tzatziki is a Mediterranean Greek sauce that’s garlicky and flavorful, served over grilled meats or used as a dip or dressing. Tzatziki sauce is traditionally made with plain yogurt, cucumbers, garlic, lemon juice, and herbs. To make it dairy-free, we combined hempseed milk (or any plant-based milk you prefer) and mayo to replace the yogurt. However, if you have a dairy-free yogurt brand you can have, feel free to use that instead to keep this recipe traditional.
Dairy-Free Yogurt: if you have a plain dairy-free yogurt brand that is safe for you to use, you can replace the milk and mayo ingredients with it. I suggest starting out with 1/2 cup of any plain dairy-free yogurt of your choice and only adding more later on if you want a thicker consistency.
Cucumber: Occasionally, we use organic biologique cucumbers/organic long English cucumbers and instead of finely diced, we sometimes shred them. Entirely your choice based on preference.
