Addicting Tzatziki Sauce

Cool and creamy is the comfort food of summer, guys. I love me some sauces (like, on everything) but now that we’re hitting triple digits outside it’s gotta be chilled. The only hot food we need at this point is straight off a grill.

Tzatziki is the tangy yogurt sauce found in Greek foods like gyros, aka your new go-to summer dip for everything. Homemade has a more intense amazing flavor and you can make it much thicker than the version found in most American restaurants.

I want to stick a spoonful through the screen so you could taste this and get yourself to the store ASAP to make your own.

This has been an obsession since the first batch – Drizzled over kebabs. Scooped up with veggies. Dipping sauce for pork & shrimp dumplings. Literally every leftover in our fridge has had a big spoonful of tzaziki on it.

I’m craving it just looking at these pictures, and maybe I just ate a big dollop on pita for breakfast. That good.

It doesn’t get any easier than this. You are going to want a jar in your fridge all summer long – trust.
