How to Make Tzatziki Sauce

  • Start by peeling the cucumbers.
  • Slice in half lengthwise.
  • Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds.
  • Cut the cucumber into 1/4 inch pieces.
  • In a large bowl, pour the full-fat canned coconut milk and mix until smooth.
  • Juice a full lemon into the bowl. Make sure to use a juicer that keeps the seed from dropping into the sauce. I like this lemon-lime juicer.
  • Add the diced cucumbers into the mixture.
  • Grate the garlic cloves using a microplane. Then, mix it into the sauce.
  • Using kitchen shears to cut the fresh dill and add into the sauce.
  • Add the one teaspoon of salt and mix together.
  • Refrigerate covered for 30 minutes before serving.
