Directions

  1. Chop the cucumber and place in a paper towel lined strainer over the sink. Sprinkle with salt and let drain for 1/2 hour. Draining the cucumbers will keep the tzatziki sauce from becoming watery.
  2. In a large bowl, combine yogurt, cucumbers, lemon juice, garlic, dill or mint, and salt and pepper to taste. This is the completed tzatziki sauce.
  3. To make ranch tzatziki sauce, put sauce in the food processor and process until smooth. Add mayonnaise, milk and ranch dressing packet and pulse until combined. Refrigerate until thickened.
