Looking for a cool, refreshing dip this summer? Look no further than Tzatziki sauce!
Tzatziki (pronounced sɑtˈziki) is a traditional Greek dip that is made of yogurt, cucumber, dill, lemon and garlic. It makes an excellent dip for veggie trays, pita chips, or gluten free crackers. Add a dollop to a Greek inspired burger or use as a dipping sauce for grilled meats to take your meal to the next level. Heck, you could even uses this as a salad dressing! I have also added a dollop on top of my Mediterranean Pilaf Salad. So tasty! The possibilities are endless with this refreshing dip!
Best part? It’s a light, healthy dip! We use protein rich Greek Yogurt instead of the heavy sour creams and mayonnaise that are usually used in dips. It’s also loaded with gut healthy probiotics. Plus, we are sneaking some vegetables in with cucumber. So there is no reason to feel guilty if you eat it by the spoonful….not that I did that or anything.
This recipe makes about one cup so if you are making this for a party, you may want to double up!
