What a delicious accompaniment for the coming summer days, from the fluffy zucchini fritters! Try making my recipe along with the yogurt sauce I recommend, which will take off the taste of zucchini fritters!


  • 1 kg zucchini, grated
  • 1 onion dry
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 120g feta cheese
  • 100g gruyere
  • 100g manouri cheese
  • 1 tbsp of dill
  • 1 tbsp of parsley
  • 2 tbsp of mint
  • 2 tbsp of fresh onion
  • 3 tbsp breadcrumbs, grated
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • lemon zest, of 1 lemon

Yogurt sauce:

  • 250g yogurt
  • 1 tbsp dill, finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt, Pepper


  1. Grate the zucchini on the grater, using the large blades, but take care not to put the flesh from the inside because then the zucchini fritters will have a lot of liquid, so we grate the outside, we don’t want a lot of seeds.
  2. Put a pot of water to boil and dip the grated zucchini there for a minute and take them out in a bowl with coldwater and ice cubes. In this way the grated zucchini will be more crunchier.
  3. Put them in a colander and let them drain.
  4. Sauté the chopped onion. When it is ready, remove it.
  5. Chop finely the herbs, the spring onion, and grate the cheese.
  6. In a large bowl add: the herbs, the sautéed onion, the eggs, the cheese, the spring onion, the lemon zest, the breadcrumbs, the flour.
  7. Drain the grated zucchini in a thin towel to remove all their liquids and add them to the bowl.
  8. Stir and put the mixture in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  9. Then shape the fritters, add a little flour and fry over medium to high heat. Drain on absorbent paper.

For the sauce:

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients and serve.
