In this delicious dairy-free version of tzatziki, I’ve replaced the cow milk yogurt with my favorite plain coconut milk yogurt. My two favorite brands are Coyo and Anita’s Yogurt because they’re thick and creamy and made with Whole30-compliant ingredients. Yes, the dip will taste slightly coconut-y, but just barely—even my coconut-hating kids don’t mind it. Plus, if you use a high quality extra virgin olive oil, the taste of coconut will be muted.

I’ve substituted other non-dairy yogurts in place of coconut in this recipe and the resulting texture isn’t as thick or tasty. However, if you hate coconut, you may want to experiment with alternatives that fit your palate.

Although this recipe is pretty quick and easy to throw together, there’s one step you absolutely shouldn’t skip: squeezing the liquid out of the grated cucumbers. It’ll only add a couple of minutes to your prep, and you’ll save yourself from the misfortune of watery Tzatziki sauce.
