Fresh coconut tzatziki

(serves 4)


  • ½ cucumber

  • 3 garlic cloves crushed

  • 1 tsp lime juice

  • ½ tsp salt

  • Handful fresh gem lettuce

  • ½ tsp dried dill

  • ½ cup coconut cream

  • 1 tblsp olive oil

  • Black pepper to taste


  1. Peel cucumber, cut in half lengthways and de-seed using a teaspoon, then coarsely grate.

  2. Put grated cucumber into a sieve suspended over a bowl, sprinkle over 1/2 tsp of salt and mix through. Place a plate on top of cucumber and allow cucumber to drain for approximately 1 hour, or until water stops dripping (whichever is first).

  3. Combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly.

  4. The flavours combine better if given time so I prefer to leave it in a sealed container in the refrigerator overnight
