Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki Sauce is a great condiment to Greek foods like gyros, chicken and lamb Souvlaki and even Greek salads

The best part is that it is fairly easy to make

Here is our version

To start we will need 1 cup of Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon of sour cream, 1 tablespoon of ranch dressing, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt and ground black pepper

Now I know our Greek readers might be shaking their heads at the addition of sour cream and ranch dressing, but I like to cut the heaviness of the yogurt a bit

Place these ingredients into a bowl

Whisk together to combine

 Next we will need 1/4 of an English cucumber (around 1 cup when grated) and 1 garlic clove

I used a box grater on these

Once grated you can add the garlic right into the Tzatziki

The cucumber holds a lot of water, so I like to put it into paper towels and squeeze as much liquid out as I can

This will keep the Tzatziki from being watered down

Then add into the bowl and combine, chill at least 15 minutes before serving

 Serve as an accompaniment to many Greek dishes!
