Tzatziki sauce is the king of sauces in my book. It’s delicious and healthy, but most of all, it’s versatile. Tzatziki sauce can be used as a dip for pita chips, fries or veggies, as a sauce for gyros, falafel, wraps or sandwiches, and as a light and simple salad dressing. Tzatziki sauce recipes range from quick to time consuming, healthy to indulgent. I’ve made tzatziki sauce a million times and this recipe is my favorite version as it’s perfectly rich and flavorful, lower in fat than the sour cream versions, and quick to throw together. I use creamy plain Greek yogurt, a mix of grated and diced cucumber, lots of lemon, fresh garlic, and a touch of rich olive oil to make a super refreshing tzatziki sauce that makes any meal a little tastier.
