I always tell people that I think I am suppose to be Greek due to my undying love of Greek food and John Stamos. I make Tzatziki weekly and just keep it in my fridge. Tzatziki is a simple yoghurt recipe. It makes a great dip, salad dressing, sandwich spread, and if you have never tried chicken lettuce cups topped with tzatziki you should.
It is easy to make and is a very healthy alternative to other dips, spreads, and toppings. Yoghurt Substitution works great for all sorts of recipes using sour cream and mayonnaise.
1 cup Mountain High Low-Fat Plain Yoghurt
1 cucumber – peeled, seeded, and chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1. Combine yoghurt, cucumber, olive oil, lemon juice, dill, garlic, salt, and pepper in a food processor. Slowly mix for the right consistency.
2. Transfer tzatziki food processor to a container. Put in the refrigerator for at least an hour. This allows all the flavors to combine.
3. Enjoy as a dip with carrots, on top of a baked potato, in a chicken pita, or however you choose to eat this delicious Tzatziki.
