Salatit Zabadi

Egyptian Yogurt Sauce

Zabadi is the Egyptian version of the Greek tzatziki, though its main ingredient is not cucumber (which is totally optional) but fresh mint. You can use it to accompany grilled meats or eat it with pita bread.

Salatit Zabadi


  • 1 cup Greek yogurt, plain
  • 1" peeled cucumber, chopped (optional)
  • 2 - 4 Tbsp. mint, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • salt to taste


Mix all ingredients together.
