Our creamy yogurt sauce recipe was created by our very own head chef and co-founder, Alida. With thick Greek yogurt, refreshing cucumber, and tangy spices, this delicious sauce is the perfect topping for our savory Burek (flaky phyllo swirl stuffed with savory fillings)!
2 cups thick Greek yogurt
1 medium cucumber, peeled, thinly diced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tbsp chopped dill
1 tbsp white vinegar
Salt to taste
Optional: olive oil and paprika to sprinkle on top
Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, adding cucumber last.You can grate the cucumber, but keep in mind that it will liquify the sauce. If you decide to add grated cucumber, strain the excess liquid through a cheesecloth. Optional: drizzle with olive oil and paprika.

Until COVID, we were selling our all natural baked burek at outdoor pop-ups in NYC and NJ. In the beginning of the lockdown last March, you asked us how you could still get our burek, so we quickly pivoted to selling them frozen and ready to bake for you to enjoy at home. We drove around NJ and NY delivering burek ourselves!
