Don’t let the summer heat get you down.

Cool down and power up with a delicious and fresh homemade Greek Power Bowl! 

The days are officially getting longer, which is great for vacations, but it can also lead to feeling more drained than usual. When you are feeling a bit groggy, shaking up your diet and incorporating more fresh ingredients is a great way to give yourself a long-lasting boost of energy! There are tons of foods that are great for keeping you motivated and energized throughout the day, and if you’re interested in learning more about them, check out our blog where we share diet and lifestyle tips to encourage healthy living! But for now, why not enjoy a delectable Mediterranean salad with your very own 5-star quality tzatziki sauce? There’s hardly enough time to get everything done in a single day, and having to spend hours on end cooking likely isn’t at the top of anyone’s to-do list. That’s why we look for recipes that are effortless and take minimal time out of our schedules, or if it does take a little longer, most of that time can be spent resting or by doing other things while you wait! This recipe is no exception!

Homemade Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki is a quintessential part of Mediterranean cuisine. Luckily, you can make this sweet, tangy, and creamy sauce easily in the comfort of your own home! This minimal-effort recipe makes 4 servings of the sauce, and it also takes some extra time for the ingredients to rest. Feel free to take that time to yourself or get some extra work done!

  • 2 cups plain Greek Yogurt
  • Cheesecloth
  • 1 English cucumber, diced small
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt plus more to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and minced
  • zest and juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh dill
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • Black pepper to taste


  1. Place the Greek Yogurt into a large piece of cheesecloth. Place the filled cheesecloth in a collider and situate over a bowl to catch the strained yogurt. Let sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the desired thickness of sauce.
  2. Meanwhile, slice the cucumber lengthwise, scrape out the center with a spoon, then dice. Add the cucumber to a mesh strainer and set over a bowl. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and stir to combine. Let sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. Use your hands to smush the salted cucumber through the strainer over the sink. Remember not to rinse it, try to get out as much liquid as possible.
  4. Stir the cucumber into the yogurt. Add a little more salt to the mixture, according to taste.
  5. Add the minced garlic, zest from 1 lemon, and juice from 1 lemon, as well as the fresh dill, tablespoon olive oil, and a few grinds of black pepper and salt to taste.
  6. Stir it all together. Chill for about an hour before serving. Use it on fresh salads or as a dipping sauce and enjoy!
