Tzatziki sauce is a Greek cucumber sauce served with meat or used as a dip. Tzatziki is primarily made of strained yogurt, in this case, Chobani Greek Non-Fat Yogurt. It’s gluten-free! They sent me some coupons for a few free yogurts so that I can create a tailgating recipe for them. Though this sauce is Greek, you can use it with other cultural foods such as saucy Indian dishes, as a dip with naan (Indian flatbread), on enchiladas, and as a dip with veggies as a snack. For authentic Greek dishes use as a sauce for gyros, or as a dressing for cucumber salad or other Greek salads. Gyros are perfect for tailgating.
There are several different variations of tzatziki sauce. Some people add mint, which is wonderful with lamb. I used dill since it best suited my gluten free gyro recipe. Make it your own and add whatever you enjoy.
Note: I am a Chobani convert. I used to buy non-fat and 100 packs of Yoplait for snacks and desserts. However, when I found out that Chobani doesn’t add starch as a thickener, I was so happy. I hate that chalky texture that Yoplait has. Chobani gets their yogurt thick by allowing it to thicken naturally. Plus, it’s non-GMO.
