Looking for a fresh taste this BBQ season? This Greek tzatziki sauce is absolutely delicious and super easy to make. With just a few ingredients and in about 10 minutes you have a tasty appetizer that everyone loves!
What I like the most about this creamy cucumber sauce is that it is a perfect side to go with grilled meats, fresh vegetables, pita bread or chips and crackers. It’s a dip, it’s a condiment, it’s a sauce and it’s a salad too!
Dilute with cold water and you have a chilled cucumber soup.
