Tarpon Springs, FL

Greek Tsatziki Dressing

Ridley's Wreckage

I love a great chicken Gyro, with lots and lots of Tsatziki dressing or sauce. I had the best chicken gyro down in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Everything was perfect, the deliciously marinated, juicy chicken, the flavorful abundance of Tsatziki sauce they gave me, the gorgeous setting with the sun going down. I literally could jump to the sponge docks and smell the sea salt air. Perfect night! If i’m to be honest, I think I love the Tsatziki more than the gyro, I could drink that heavenly sauce. I use Tsatziki on everything at home, burgers, veggie sandwiches, I even use it as dip for my pretzels. I use to buy this sauce from the grocery store, until I found this recipe. This sauce is super easy to make, the hardest part is not drinking it straight outta the bowl, lol just kidding. Really the hardest part is shredding the cucumber - but sooo worth it, and lets be honest it’s really not that difficult!

This sauce goes so well with my chicken gyros, which are also super easy and flavorful. Check out my recipe and give it a go, you won’t be disappointed!

Servings: 4, prep time: 10 mins, melding time: 30 mins, total time: 40 mins

  • 1 English Cucumber (you are going to want it peeled, seeded and shredded)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 3 Tablespoons dill - fresh and finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 minced garlic cloves


Take your shredded cucumber and place it on some paper towels, let it soak up the liquid from your cuke (you still want it a bit damp).

In a medium sized bowl, take your Greek yogurt, fresh chopped dill, olive oil, minced garlic, red wine vinegar and kosher salt (to taste) and mix very well.

Add your cucumber and gently fold into the yogurt mixture. Adjust your seasonings if needed.

Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (the longer the better) you want all of the flavors to marry together in perfect harmony. I usually make my Tsatziki in the morning when I’m prepping my Greek marinade for my chicken gyros. This gives my Tsatziki lots of time to meld.
