Tzatziki is my new obsession. I could (and have been) eating it on everything lately. I love the light and bright flavors it’s so fresh I could eat it with a spoon. Lol! And tzatziki goes so well on so many things, you can use it as a dip for warm pita, veggie sticks or douse a sandwich with it – the possibilities are literally endless.
The only other thing to say is…you gotta try this easy tzatziki! When I make a fresh batch you can bet I’m going to make a Greek Chicken Pita. It’s a great vessel for loading on the sauce!
- 2 – 5oz containers of plain greek yogurt – whole milk
- 1 English cucumber – seeds removed and diced very small
- 1 clove of garlic – grated on a Microplane
- 1/4 red onion – diced very small
- 1 teaspoon dill – dried
- juice from 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (+ to your taste buds)
- large pinch black pepper
Place the chopped cucumber in a towel and gently squeeze out any excess moisture.
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients, yogurt, cucumber, grated garlic, diced red onion, dill, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Chill for at least one hour before serving, this allows the flavors to combine and really develop.
