This dairy free tzatziki is by far one of my favorite dips to make. When going dairy free it’s difficult to find a tzatziki that tastes like the traditional version. This one is nearly spot on through the use of quality dairy-free yogurt, as well as healthy fat additions.

Making This Dairy Free Tzatziki Recipe
You may be asking yourself: Is Tzatziki dairy-free? Traditionally no, but this one certainly is! Preparing to make this dairy-free tzatziki sauce is incredibly easy to make ahead of time & store in the fridge for a gathering or your weekly meals. First, start off by making sure your produce is washed well and allow the herbs to dry as much as possible.
Follow by grating your cucumber and reserving it in a smaller bowl while also utilizing a large bowl for your dairy free tzatziki sauce to follow in.
Once your cucumber is grated and reserved in your bowl, add the salt and lightly toss. During this time you’ll want to get your remaining ingredients chopped while finely mincing your garlic. Finish by adding the ingredients together and mixing until fully combined. Adjust your salt, lemon, and pepper amounts if desired! Serve and enjoy!
