Tzatziki authentic recipe with cucumber:

The best dip for the summer in recent years, tzatziki has been enjoying a revival as a light and healthy dip, but it is not a new idea. 

In the past, it was very popular in Greece, Turkey and other Mediterranean countries. The traditional way to prepare tzatziki is with yogurt and garlic. But many people prefer to use a mixture of yogurt and mayonnaise or sour cream instead. 

This version of tzatziki is more suitable for summer salads, as the mayonnaise keeps the dressing fresh for longer.

The original version used a lot of olive oil and cheese, yo can replace it with yogurt and lemon juice.
