Tzatziki is a refreshing sauce made of yogurt and cucumber that is popular in Greece. It pairs well with meat, vegetables and the famed Greek gyros. Making this delicious sauce is a breeze if you follow our recipe for Greek tzatziki.
For the best tzatziki, use Greek yogurt, which is thicker than the American varietal. Greek yogurt obtains a very thick consistency because it is strained over night. This allows the extra fluid to drain, leaving only a thick rich yogurt that tastes a bit like fresh cheese.
If you like Greek food, consider preparing this Greek salad to pair along with the rest of your feast.
