Tzatziki is SO easy to make at home and far better and fresher than you can get at the store. Try this with chicken, veggies, or with pita chips or bread! If you can't find fresh dill, dried will also work. Use about 1 Tbsp of dry dill weed.

What you will need

1/2 Cucumber

1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt

1/2 Lemon

1/2 tbsp Olive Oil

1 Garlic Clove

1/4 tsp Salt

.5 oz Fresh Dill
