I’ve always been a fan of tzatziki sauce when ordering Greek food. But lately I’ve found so many new uses for it – I’m convinced this is a miracle condiment! It started when J. & I were desperate for a low to no-fat salad dressing. One night I tossed the salad in a plain yogurt-garlic-dill mixture and that was it! We found our perfect dressing. The other night I made a batch to serve with meatballs & a side of sliced cucumber and tomato (another winner!), and of course it can be served as a dip, seen above. So, so good.
I don’t have measurements for this recipe. You have to taste test! Combine:
Plain Greek-style yogurt (I use fat free)
Cloves of garlic, minced
Dill (Chopped and fresh is best!)
Cucumber, peeled, seeded & grated
Salt & pepper
The sauce tastes best when you let it sit, refrigerated, for at least an hour. Serve this at your next get together with pita, olives & chunks of feta – such a nice alternative to regular dip & cheese plates! XO
