Tzatziki is a traditional Greek dip made from yogurt, cucumber, dill, garlic and lemon. To be honest it’s fairly low carb to start with, but I’ve made it extra low carb by increasing the ratio of cucumber to yogurt, and reducing the lemon juice.
First prepare the cucumber by slicing it in half across the middle, then dividing each half into quarters. This makes it easier to remove the seeds from the center, which you’ll need to do in order to stop the dip getting too watery. Discard the seeds, then finely chop or grate the remaining cucumber. I actually used the blade attachment on my stick blender for this – super quick!
To the cucumber add the remaining ingredients: Greek yogurt, garlic (I used garlic paste as I prefer how it blends in with everything else, but use fresh if you prefer!), lemon juice, and chopped fresh dill. Stir well and test for seasoning, adding salt and black pepper as necessary.
