Grate cucumber over large cheese grater until you have 1 cup. Take the grated cucumber and squeeze excess liquid out over the sink. Place into a large bowl to mix in other ingredients.
Add the Forager Project Unsweetened Cashewmilk Yogurt, extra virgin olive oil, chopped dill, chopped basil, lemon zest and juice, minced garlic cloves and a pinch of both salt and pepper. Mix well until everything is combined then set aside.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with tinfoil and begin layering sheets of phyllo dough on top of one another.
Cook phyllo dough according to package directions. Take out of the oven and set aside to cool.
Thinly slice the tomatoes and place each slice on a paper towel to absorb the excess liquid.
Once the phyllo dough has cooled, the tomatoes have been sliced and the tzatziki has been mixed, it’s time to assemble and serve.
Transfer the phyllo dough sheets onto a serving plate. Spread the tzatziki sauce over the top- leaving one inch around the outer edge. Layer the tomatoes across the tzatziki sauce, garnish with fresh basil leaves, dill, salt and pepper.
Serve and enjoy immediately.
