Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce)
15 mins (prep 10, cooking 5)
7 ingredients
2 servings
Another variation of tzatziki. This recipe is adapted from "The Olive and the Caper," a Greek cookbook that I checked out from the library. This is great over baked salmon, gyro-style sandwiches, as a sauce for vegetable fritters... etc. This is best made several hours (up to the night before) before serving.
