Tzatziki sauce- a Greek yogurt based sauce/dip with cucumbers, dill, garlic and lemon. How simple and so amazing it is. It pairs so well on gyros of course, chicken souvlaki, and as a dip! I don’t stop there though, literally throw dollops of it on salad and veggies like a spread too. It’s so fresh and summery and I MISS IT!! Not eating Greek yogurt has left a hole in my heart when I see Tzatziki on the table.
I’m taking a stand.
So I’m saying yes to the fresh cucumber and dill today, sans yogurt. If you can eat Greek yogurt, simply do 1 cup of it with the rest of the ingredients. I instead subbed in 1/2 soaked cashews and 1/2 coconut cream for a smooth consistency that is a dairy-free version. You won’t taste the coconut, just the ‘tzatzeeks’ as I call it. And here I sit… Chopping on crudités dipped in it- YASSS! If you have access to a great non-dairy yogurt you love, toss that in for the probiotic benefit too.
Love this- hope you do too!!
