  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, plus extra for garnish
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • Toasted pita or pita chips, for serving


Stir together the yogurt, cucumber, garlic, lemon juice, and dill in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Before serving, garnish with more fresh dill and serve with toasted pita.
