Quick tzatziki sauce is creamy and stuffed with vibrant summer time flavors. This is a flexible sauce that can be utilized as a dip for veggies, chicken strips/kabobs, breads, lamb kabobs, on a gyro or as a enjoyable condiment.
Most recipes shred the cucumbers and, I do know that's the conventional method to make a Tzatziki sauce however, now we have discovered chopping the cucumber in a meals processor (or by hand) is a a lot sooner and, I would add, simpler method to make the sauce. Plus, for us, we just like the small chunks of cucumber. . .so good!!!!
How do you make a Quick Tzatziki Sauce
Chop the cucumber by hand or in a meals processor. Sprinkle on some salt. Let it stand for a couple of minutes. Then squeeze the cucumber with a CLEAN kitchen towel (haha) or paper towel.
Add the Greek yogurt (we use non fats to avoid wasting just a few energy), lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, recent dill, salt and pepper to the chopped, towel dried cucumbers. Gently stir collectively till combined effectively. Taste!! Then add extra salt and pepper if wanted.
This tangy cool sauce is nice on pita bread or crackers, chips, and minimize veggies. We like to serve it with grilled meats, particularly in the summertime! There's one thing in regards to the refreshing sauce paired with that grill taste that makes it irresistible! Of course, this fast tzatziki sauce may also be served alongside gyros for a enjoyable "make your own" meal evening. Just set out some grilled lamb or hen, cucumber strips, diced tomato, onion, feta cheese, and pita. Everyone can construct their very own gyro and add all of the tzatziki sauce they like.
