Tzatziki Sauce Recipe Tip:
- How long can you keep tzatziki in the fridge? I personally like to discard the tzatziki sauce after 4 days.
- How long does it take to make tzatziki? Typically, it takes about 15 minutes to make this delicious sauce.
- Chill the dip for a couple hours before serving. Chilling it also allow the flavors to set.
- Adding fresh parsley can also enhance the flavor.
- Straining the cucumber after it is grated helps the dip become less watery when it is processed. However, if you forget to strain the cucumber, add a little more Greek yogurt to thicken the sauce.
