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!!

Marinara sauce is a popular, robust Italian sauce made with tomatoes, onions, and herbs.  A lot of times you will hear this sauce called “gravy.”  Marinara sauce is usually a little spicier than other standard tomato sauces due to the amount of garlic & a little crushed red pepper.  This sauce is easy to prepare but needs to cook for about 3 hrs.  It is versatile and can be used in various Italian dishes, you can also transform marinara into a fantastic cream sauce (vodka sauce w/o the vodka).  Once you make a big batch, store it in the freezer.  Beware…..once you make your own sauce,  you will no longer enjoy the jarred stuff.
