This yogurt-based sauce is refreshing and full of flavor! It’s perfect for using as a dip with pita bread and vegetables, or as a sauce with grilled meats.
Tzatziki is fresh and light and it pairs well with grilled meats, it’s perfect as a spread for wraps, and equally as amazing as a dip with vegetables and triangles of pita bread. I use no-fat greek yogurt making this recipe virtually guilt free. The health benefits you get from the calcium and protein in this recipe are not to be matched when paired with fresh vegetables and/or grilled meat. Tzatziki dip will be your new go to dip of the summer!

The first time I ever tasted tzatziki oddly enough was in Germany. I was living there going to school at the time, and a friend took me to a Greek restaurant, I fell in love with Greek food, and mostly tzatziki. I always asked for and extra bowl of it on the side! It was like nothing I had ever had back home. After returning home, I found that my home town was lacking in Greek /Mediterranean restaurants so I wrote (this was back before email) a letter to my girlfriend and asked her if she could get me the recipe for tzatziki. I was shocked to find out how simple it was!
Yogurt, cucumber, garlic, lemon and herbs = the most delicious healthy dip ever! I have to admit I’m pretty conservative with the garlic, because it tends to linger on me for days and weeks and no one enjoys being near me when I’ve had too much. So feel free to go gangbusters on the garlic if you like, most would say the more the merrier!
I’m sharing the recipe for Tzatziki on the Drink Milk Blog today as part of an ongoing partnership. I’ve worked with the American Dairy Association Mideast many times and I’m super excited to be able to represent them at the BlogHer Food Conference in Miami this week! So head on over to grab the recipe for Tzatziki on the ADA Mideast website along with many other great recipes. The ADA Mideast website is a great resource!
