Homemade Tzatziki
If you frequent Greek restaurants, or even locally Coney’s you’ve most likely ordered a Gyro or two. I love the sauce that you can get on them, also known as Tzatziki. It’s a fresh cucumber sauce and it’s so good for veggie dips and more. The best part, it’s super easy to make :).

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 3 garlic cloves, mashed to a paste
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
  • salt

Directions:

  1. Peel your cucumbers and cut into 3 sections. Halve each section and remove the seeds. Place cucumber chunks into a colander and sprinkle with salt – let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Place your cucumbers in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Add in your remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth.
  4. Refrigerate you Tzatziki for at least 2 hours before serving.

Tzatziki is great on gyros, as a dressing, or as a dip! It has a light and fresh flavor and is delicious year round!
