Can I Make Tzatziki without Cucumber?

Tzatziki with no cucumber? No problem!  While cucumber is a traditional staple in tzatziki sauces, you can still make a delicious version without it.

This recipe is great if you have someone who doesn’t like cucumber but still want to make this creamy yogurt dip…. or, if you’re like me, you go to make a shawarma and don’t have any fresh cucumber on hand.  The kale is a fantastic substitute and gives this dip a nice earthy crunch.

I have a whole collection of recipes that require zero cooking at all, check them out here!  This sauce comes together in about 5 minutes, and doesn’t require the stove or microwave to make. Just use a few pantry staple ingredients, a fe fresh chopped herbs and veggies, and you have a tasty meal ready in no time.  And very little to clean up afterwards… an added bonus!

What’s In This Kale Tzatziki Sauce Recipe?

  • Greek Yogurt – tzatziki is traditionally made with Greek Yogurt, so I like to use it for my dips. If you are vegan or dairy free, there are some amazing plant based Greek yogurts out there made from almonds and cashews!  Just make sure you use a plain unsweetened Greek Yogurt in this dip.
  • Garlic
  • Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity Zoe olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s really inexpensive online here, so I keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value, I would highly recommend!
  • Apple Cider Vinegar gives this sauce a little extra tang which is really fantastic! I love using this organic apple cider vinegar with the mother which has a great flavor.  I think it gives a nice extra sweetness and depth, and mimics the taste of real dairy.
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Kale
  • Fresh Dill
