Zucchini Latkes with Tzatziki

Instead of potatoes try zucchini in your next latke and serve them with a Greek cucumber yogurt dip, very similar to traditional Greek zucchini fritters. 

Make sure to use a great quality extra virgin olive oil. We love Colavita!

  • 2 large zucchini (about 1-pound), shredded
  • 1 small onion, shredded
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup matzo meal
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil, such as Colavita, for frying
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 1/4 cup diced cucumber
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


1. In a large bowl, combine zucchini, onions, eggs, matzo meal and salt and stir to combine. 

2. Heat ¼-inch oil in a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Drop by 2 tablespoons full and lightly press down to flatten. Fry for about 4 to 6 minutes per side or until nicely browned. Remove and drain on paper towels. Continue with remaining batter.

3. In a small bowl, combine yogurt, dill, cucumber, lemon juice and salt and stir. Serve Tzatziki alongside Latkes.
