  • 1 Persian cucumber or ½ English cucumber, peeled and seeded
  • 1 cup plain coconut yogurt I like Coyo or Anita's brands
  • 2 tablespoon minced fresh mint leaves or dill
  • 1 small garlic clove minced
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Diamond Crystal kosher salt 
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Peel the cucumber and scoop out the seeds. Grate the cucumber on the large holes of a box grater or finely dice it. Place the grated cucumber in a clean dish towel and squeeze out the excess liquid.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the coconut yogurt, mint (or dill), garlic, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, and lemon juice.
  • Add the diced cucumbers and stir well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Drizzle the remaining tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil on top of the dairy-free Tzatziki sauce.


The sauce can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days.
