I love tzatziki! You will see it feature as a side in a lot of my recipes. I almost always have some in the fridge, ready to be added to a salad plate or a sandwich. It's healthy too, but most importantly it's delicious!

It is essentially a cucumber and yoghurt dip, originally hailing from Greece. i sometimes also make Turkish Cacik, which is very similar but also includes dill in the mixture. I sometime also add a bit of fresh mint or chives if I happen to have some in the fridge.

It's great with kebabs, toasted pita bread, crisps and for dipping in veg. It's a great healthy option and packed full of flavour.

Let me know if you try it!

  • Oh yum! Can't wait to give this a try! Love all the different recipes shared by so many wonderful cooks. I could eat this straight out of the bowl. Hands down one of my favorite grilling condiments of all time. Some of my crew have a mint thing, so for them I Americanize it by subbing in chives; green onion/scallion; parsley and even cilantro. Still quite tasty for those that do not care for mint.

    I love it! I use it on microwaved sweet potatoes (in addition to butter) and topped with anything else.
