Mediterranean Yogurt Cucumber Dip

"This cucumber dip with pita chips and yogurt is filled with all the flavors of the Mediterranean. The flavor of the falafel crumbles, the tang from the yogurt and the crunch of the pita all give this cucumber dip a thumbs up."

Recipe Card


  • 1 cups Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 3 clove garlic
  • 1/2 juiced lemon
  • 1 whole diced cucumber
  • 3 tablespoons or feta cheese, crumbled Feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons diced beets
  • 3 crumbled falafel Pattys
  • 3 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 1/2 diced red onion
  • 1 whole diced tomato
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil


  • Step 1

    In a large bowl begin by making the base of the cucumber dip. Add the 3 cloves of diced garlic, greek yogurt, lemon juice and 1 tbsp of fresh dill. Slowly fold in the feta and half of the diced cucumber.

  • Step 2

    Just before serving, add the falafel crumbles, remaining cucumber, red onion, beets, tomato and remaining dill. Top with more feta cheese as desired and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.

  • Step 3

    Falafel can be purchased in the international foods aisle in a box and prepared according to package instructions (or bake them at 400 for 15-20 minutes flipping halfway through). Alternatively, you could leave this out of the recipe but I would recommend topping it with some za’atar seasoning for extra flavor.
