Easy Homemade Tzatziki Sauce Recipe (with Sour Cream)

  • Author: Sweetpea
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x
  • Category: appetizer
  • Method: no-cook
  • Cuisine: greek


  • 1 Lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 Garlic Clove, grated
  • 1 cup Grated Cucumber (liquid squeezed out)
  • 16 ounces Sour Cream
  • 1 TBS Oregano
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 TBS Olive Oil
  • 2 TBS Feta Cheese (optional)


  1. Zest and juice your lemon over a medium mixing bowl, straining the seeds out.
  2. Using a microplane, grate your garlic clove into the lemon juice.
  3. Grate the cucumber and squeeze out the liquid, add one cup to the lemon and garlic. (If your English Cucumber doesn’t measure exactly a cup that’s fine, if it’s slightly over a cup, that’s fine!)
  4. Dump in your 16-ounce container of sour cream.
  5. Add in 1 tablespoon of oregano, 1 teaspoon of salt, half a teaspoon of black pepper, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  6. Mix all of this together really well, making sure everything is evenly incorporated.
  7. Cover or place in an air-tight container and let chill in the fridge for an hour before serving.
  8. This keeps covered in an air-tight container for up to 3 days in the fridge.


If you would like to use this dip for longer than 3 days, use garlic powder instead! 2 teaspoons will do the trick!
