Tzatziki is a Greek sauce or dip that is traditionally made with strained yogurt. This dairy free version uses soy yogurt and strains it through a cheesecloth to thicken it.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
- 2 ½ cups plain soy yogurt, such as Silk or Wildwood
- 1 ½ cup peeled and chopped cucumber
- 1 T. salt
- 1 T. lemon juice
- 1 T. olive oil
- 2 t. minced garlic
- 2 T. chopped fresh dill
1. Place 2 layers of cheesecloth over a fine colander or strainer set over a bowl so that it is not touching the base but so that the entire bottom of the colander is over the bowl. (If part of the colander hangs over the edge of the bowl, you will have a mess!) Pour the soy yogurt over the cheesecloth and place the colander and bowl in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
2. In a small mixing bowl, combine all of the remaining ingredients. Mix in the strained soy yogurt. Serve cold and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
