Try This Tzatziki Recipe


This one you most likely have heard of: Tzatziki is a very popular dish, which you can eat with basically anything. When I don’t go out and make it at home, I like to dip French fries in it or spread it over chicken wings or beef steak. In Greece, my local friends ordered Tzatziki with everything!

Watch How To Make It:

I’ve tried Tzatziki in several restaurants, in Greece and in other countries; I even tried buying it from the supermarket. I can tell you that in my opinion, yogurt is very important. If you don’t use real Greek yogurt and if it’s not full fat, you won’t get the most out of it.

Here is the written recipe, with the ingredients and step by step instructions:
