basically tzakaki on bread! perfect for chill summer dinners or entertaining but still impressive and tasty


  • baguette
  • olive oil
  • 1-2 large cucumbers or a handful of english cucumbers
  • full fat greek yogurt
  • coarse sea salt
  • fresh dill


  1. finely dice up cucumbers and let sit in a bowl till you’re ready to serve.
  2. slice a baguette and brush olive oil top before grilling, toasting, pan frying or baking the bread. totally up to you how you want to crisp up your toasties, i’ve been using my balmuda.
  3. once your bread is golden brown and you’re ready to serve, mix the cucumbers with greek yogurt. start with about 2-3 heaping tb and add as you like it. you want it to be creamy but not dripping with yogurt.
  4. sprinkle your sea salt and some sprigs of fresh dill on top and serve!
