Tzatziki 🍴. My husband's cousin from Greece taught me how to make a Tzatziki sauce a lot like this recipe but without the dill. I make this sauce whenever I fix a pork tenderloin. I use the Souvlaki recipe by Abby Benner to marinade the tenderloin.
Also lemon juice is preferable to vinegar. But the one non-negotiable item is the strained, full fat yogurt. Called Cacik in Turkey, Tarator in the Balkans, Tzatziki in Greece, each version of this salad is a variation on a theme: yogurt, cucumbers, garlic, fresh herbs The yogurt is thick, and pungent with mashed garlic, the cucumbers either finely chopped or grated, then salted and allowed to wilt Walnuts enrich the Balkan version, which is also considered a soup, as is Cacik Tzatziki is a simple Greek yogurt sauce that goes well on everything from chicken to beef to pita chips!

Tzatziki 🍴 instructions
- Lavez, épluchez et coupez le concombre en dès..
- Rajoutez le reste des ingrédients et mélangez le tout..

- PS: traditionnellement on rajoute de la menthe fraiche et ciselée a la recette pour ma part je l'ai gardée comme telle pour la déco..
Note: If I have time, I often lightly salt the grated cucumber and put in a colander to drain, then squeeze out water as per usual. Also, if you are looking for a vegan tzatziki sauce or a dairy free tzatziki sauce, then just use coconut milk yogurt instead of Greek yogurt. This is so tangy and delicious; perfect spread over some warm bread! I also love to eat this sauce with raw veggies as a healthy snack option. There's lots of protein in the yogurt, so it keeps me full.
