Tzatziki isn't just for gyros.... The sauce is actually a fantastic change of pace addition to any grilled meat or fish. It's also excellent used as a veggie dip, salad dressing, put it on a pork rind, a lettuce wrap sandwich and more. You can pretty much substitute Tzatziki sauce for anything you might use mayonnaise on. Only about two carbs per two Tablespoon serving!
- 3/4 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 an English cucumber, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- One Tablespoon dried dill
- One Tablespoon lemon juice (citric acid is a nice alternative)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix until thoroughly incorporated, cover and chill for about 30 minutes or until ready to use.
