One of my absolute favorite types of food is Greek food. As someone with a Greek background and having lived in Greece as a child, I am very familiar with the ingredients and methods used in Greek cuisine. Most Greek dishes are simple to make and use very basic ingredients and seasonings. The ingredients chosen are always so fresh and flavorful that a lot of the times extravagant seasonings and spices are not necessary and great flavor can be achieved with a little bit of time and care.
Tzatziki sauce has to be one of the most popular Greek sides and a staple to many Greek meals. Tzatziki is a yogurt based dip or condiment, flavoured with fresh garlic, cucumber, lemon and fresh herbs. Tzatziki can be enjoyed on its own, dipped with pita bread, over oven roasted potatoes and as a delicious topping on souvlaki or burgers.
I hope you try this delicious dip and enjoy it as much as I do. It’s perfect for summer bbq season!
