I know this isn’t very fallish of me, but I had to share my tzatziki recipe. 😀 I have been making this a lot lately and just can’t get enough. You can still find wonderful cucumbers in the store, so why not? For those of you that aren’t familiar with tzatziki, it is made of cucumbers, Greek yogurt, and garlic. It is traditionally made with dill, but not for this girl. Dill can be so overpowering, and I enjoy the other flavors too much. It is a versatile and delicious dip/sauce and is very healthy. It is great on salads and sandwiches, and paired with chicken or beef. It is also a delicious dip for chips, pita bread, or raw veggies. I love it spooned on top of broccoli, yes broccoli! It is a delicious combo that I stumbled upon one day. It can also be used as a salad dressing. For anyone watching their calories, it is a great alternative to adding more fatty accompaniments, like cheese or dressings. I hope you all enjoy my version of this classic Greek sauce/dip!
- 1 ½ cups Greek yogurt (2% of full milk fat)
- 1 ½ regular garden cucumbers
- 2 large garlic cloves
- 1 tsp. salt
#1 Use as a sauce for sandwiches, souvlaki, gyros, and chicken or beef.
#2 Use as a dip the next time you have guests.
#3 Use unstrained or minimally strained as a delicious salad dressing.
#4 Top cooked broccoli with it. They are really tasty together.
Try it on my Greek Salad Sandwich.
