Greek Tzatziki

Have you ever tried making Greek Tzatziki? Creamy Greek yoghurt is combined with grated cucumber and spiced with garlic, dill and vinegar. Simple, fresh and healthy! I paired it with roasted cherry tomatoes to make a fabulous appetizer.



Tzatziki is a traditional greek dish and the basic ingredients are greek yoghurt, cucumber ,garlic, olive oil and vinegar. Usually it is made with dill, but this ingredient is optional, so if you aren't a fan of dill you can just avoid it.
