Tzatziki sauce is my favorte part of going to a Greek restaurant! It’s deliciously fresh and easy to make!
I put it on everything from pita bread to chicken and my daughter loves to take it to school for with pita or veggies as a lunch! There are lots of different versions of tzatziki, some don’t use lemon, some use mint instead of dill… but this is definitely our favorite!
If possible you’ll want to use fresh lemon and dill for the best results! If you are using dried dill you’ll want to use about 1 1/2 teaspoons in place of the fresh dill. I’ve made this with both Greek yogurt and plain yogurt and had great results with both. I do find that a fat free yogurt doesn’t taste as good as the ‘real’ stuff.
