Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki is one of my favorite side dishes. I used it as a dip, served with julienned vegetables and some pitas. My kids loved it! But most of the time I use it as a sauce to go with my fish and chips, or my pork or chicken pitas! I have a confession, I am addicted to garlic in any shape or form: in a sauce, roasted, in a salad, in a dip. Wherever there is garlic, count me in! 🙂

I use Lebanese cucumbers in this recipe, they are almost seedless and contain less water than other cucumbers. They won't add too much water into your sauce.

Instructions

  • Put the Greek yogurt in a bowl, add salt and pepper. Don't mix yet, otherwise it will become too liquid.
