This beloved, incredibly hard to pronounce Greek dip is a refreshing mix of plain strained yoghurt blended with cucumbers, dill, parsley and garlic, plus a mix of spices. It’s really a simple recipe, but it’s filled with astoundingly fresh, herbal flavor, all while smooth and creamy.
Besides being a great dip or spread to serve with pita as an appetizer or starter, this spread can also be used as a sauce for other main dishes, especially a classic Middle Eastern roasted lamb, but also served with grilled fish, burgers, as a dip for chicken kebabs, and of course, a classic Gyro sandwich. The characteristic tartness, that cooling cucumber flavor and the creamy yogurt all come together to make Tzatziki a great match to many dishes – especially if you want to bring down the heat or add a cooling component.
