Tzatziki: Savory Greek Yogurt Sauce
Serves 2 ½ cups
Yogurt is not just for breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, yogurt is great as a thickening protein source in a smoothie or as a binder for a bowl of fruit, but yogurt is also great as a savory ingredient. Savory tzatziki is a tangy Greek sauce for meat, rice, and bread. It’s a better addition on sandwiches than soy-based sandwich spreads. And it has much more flavor. Enjoy.
