Tzatziki Sauce

We have a favorite Greek restaurant in town (truthfully, it’s about the only Greek restaurant in town) and we love the tzatziki sauce.  This homemade version comes pretty close to what we get at the restaurant.  Tzatziki sauce is a big favorite of my youngest, who is a huge fan of cucumbers dipped in Ranch dressing. So if you’re a fan of Cucumber Ranch dressing, this sauce will be right up your alley! We like to use it in gyros, but it’s also good as a vegetable and chip dip.   You can even thin it out with a bit of milk and use it as a salad dressing. If you can’t find Greek seasoning at your grocery store, or you want to make your own, try this recipe.

  1. We love Tzatziki sauce as well. It is such a great, versatile condiment. I love the idea of adding some rice wine vinegar to it. I also serve it along baked potatoes instead of butter and sour cream and it is delicious :o)

  2. This looks so good… I buy a lot of Tzatziki sauce for my pita chips.

  3. I love Tzatziki and all the yummy Greek food that goes with it ­čÖé

  4. This looks great. What is “Greek Seasoning?”

  5. I’m sure I could just eat this by the spoonful! Yummy.
