TZATZIKI

On January 11, 2014 by Tina Diep

tzatikiThis recipe is dedicated to my good friend, Rob, who had never heard or tasted tzatziki until I made it on a group trip to a villa in the South of France.
Months later, Rob requested the tasty dressing that he couldn’t pronounce. He took the tzatziki into his possession and shamelessly licked the bowl clean.
I wish I had a picture of this.

In case you haven’t heard about tzatiki yourself it is a Greek dressing mainly based on strained yogurt and cucumber with garlic, it is delicious in sandwiches, with tabbouleh and pita bread or as a dip.
