Touchdown Tzatziki Dip

Serves 8

One serving equals ½ Dairy and ½ Vegetable.


  • 3 cups (500mL) plain nonfat yogurt
  • 3 medium cucumbers, peeled and shredded
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp (30mL) lemon juice
  • 1½ Tbsp (38mL) olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp (45mL) fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 tsp (2mL) freshly ground pepper



In a colander, squeeze any access liquid out of the cucumbers; discard liquid. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Mix well, mashing as necessary to achieve a smooth consistency. Refrigerate for at least two hours before servings, allowing flavours to combine. Serve with Superbowl Lemon Basil Boneless Wings or fresh veggies and cut whole wheat pitas.
