This really is The Easiest Tzatziki Sauce recipe! You can whip it up in 2-3 minutes. It is delicious with grilled vegetables, gyros, and Greek salad.
The Easiest Tzatziki Sauce gives incredible flavor to grilled vegetables and of course with gyros (click here). When I serve it with gyros I like to be able to crunch into the cucumbers so I leave them diced instead and just stir everything together instead of processing everything. If I am serving with grilled veggies, I will process all the ingredients so the sauce holds to the vegetables better. It’s totally up to you how you want to do it! This is also great over Greek salads, if it is too thick, you can just add a teaspoon or so of milk.
Versatile and Delicious
The other day we made kebabs with lemon-marinated chicken and all sorts of yummy vegetables (peppers, squash, zucchini, tomatoes, onions, etc). We grilled them all up and served them with this Tzatziki on the side. They were a huge hit and everyone (kids included) gobbled them up. If you are looking to make a healthy, low-carb dinner, definitely try it! It will quickly become a favorite!
What is Tzatziki Sauce?
Tzatziki sauce can be a dip, a sauce or a soup. It’s found in Southeast European cuisine, as well as in the Middle East. There are lots of ways to make tzatziki sauce, but generally it includes yogurt, cucumbers, olive oil, garlic and other seasonings. Often the recipe will include vinegar or lemon juice, parsley, thyme, dill or mint. Tzatziki sauce is quite healthy. Despite its creamy texture, it is relatively low in calories. And it goes great with a variety of Greek foods.
