Here’s a Greek version of my favorite cucumber raita. The addition of the dill really freshens up the flavor. Enjoy as a dip or as a spread for sandwiches – It’s a great healthy option for all your summer gatherings!


2 cups plain Greek yogurt

2 cups shredded or diced cucumber 

½ cup minced fresh dill 

¼ cup lemon juice

2 cloves grated garlic (optional)

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp ground pepper


1 Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and add more seasonings if you prefer 

2 Serve immediately with hot pita, pita chips, crunchy veggies. Refrigerate and use within 3 days
