Tzatziki Sauce Greek Cucumber/Yogurt Sauce

Tzatziki is a Greek & Turkish sauce that is used on soulvaki or gyros. It is a cold refreshing sauce or dip that pairs well with meat, pitas, pita chips and veggies.  There  are so  many variations of how to make Tzatziki…….  I like to add mint, parsley and dill for a fresh &  flavorful sauce.

Try out my Greek Lamb Chops recipe and dunk it into the Tzatziki……yummm!!  OR if you are a chicken lover…My Chicken Soulvaki Pita recipe is coming soon!!
