Tzatziki isn't just for gyros.... The sauce is actually a fantastic change of pace addition to any grilled meat or fish. Use it as a topping on a burger, put a generous dollop on salmon, serve it on the side with kabobs. It's also excellent used as a veggie dip, salad dressing, put it on a pork rind, a lettuce wrap sandwich and more. You can pretty much substitute Tzatziki sauce for anything you might use mayonnaise on and with only about two carbs per two Tablespoon serving that makes it Carb-Check Diet friendly!
- 3/4 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 an English cucumber, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- One Tablespoon dried dill
- One Tablespoon lemon juice (citric acid is a nice alternative)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix until thoroughly incorporated, cover and chill for about 30 minutes or until ready to use.
Not only is Tzatziki delicious, versatile and easy to put together, it's cheap to make! You can whip up a batch of Tzatziki for less than $5 and have plenty of leftover ingredients to make more, or create something else. That's what I call a Bachelor on the Cheap winner of a recipe.
