One thing that makes Tzatziki so great, is how versatile it is. You could go the traditional route and eat Tzatziki in a gyro. Dip veggies or pita bread in it for a healthy snack or appetizer. It is also AMAZING with chicken or salmon. Heck, I eat it with everything. Meat,  veggies, potatoes, rice... you name it. Need a little inspiration? Try out this Rainbow Couscous grain bowl

 

Alright ladies and gents, this sauce is GOOD. It is slightly tangy from the Greek yogurt, zesty from the lemon (haha see what I did there), and fresh from the dill and cucumber with the perfect subtle hint of garlic. I like to make a batch of it and keep in the fridge for whenever I feel like I need a little Tzatziki in my life.

Healthy Tzatziki Sauce

A guilt-free sauce packed with flavor!

Serves: 6-8

Healthy Tzatziki Sauce

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt (full fat)
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh dill
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice

Instructions:
  1. Prep Ingredients: Chop the fresh dill. Peel and mince the garlic cloves. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise and remove the seeds with a spoon (they scoop out really easily). Then grate or finely chop the cucumber. TIP: To save time (and avoid chopping), I put the garlic and cucumber through a garlic press. Perfectly minced ingredients in less than 30 seconds!
  2. Combine: Combine all the Tzatziki sauce ingredients until well combined.
  3. Enjoy: Enjoy immediately or store in a sealed container in the fridge until ready to use!
