Tzatziki sauce. I’m not really sure how to pronounce it (ta-zee-kee?), all I know is it’s good. It’s darn good. I’ve made this a couple of times, once to go with a quinoa burger, and last night to accompany a Greek meatball lettuce wrap situation. Both times I could take or leave the main ingredient and just eat this with a spoon. It’s that good! Or you know, with fresh veggies or pita chips. The best thing about it is you can just eyeball the recipe. Here’s what I did:

Tzatziki Sauce
1 small carton plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon (or splash) lemon juice
1 Tablespoon fresh dill (from my garden! You can use dried I guess, but fresh dill is where it’s at)
1 Garlic Clove, finely minced (I used half of a huge clove, and it was spicy!)
1/4 English cucumber, peeled & seeded, diced into small-ish chunks
Sprinkle of salt & pepper

Throw all of those ingredients in a food processor, I just used my mini hand blender, & buzz up until it’s smooth.

Straight from a spoon. “Is nummy!”
