Tzatziki Sauce

   Every Sunday night I meet with a sweet group of friends from church and we eat and share together. Each week our cuisine changes; This week was "Greek" week which means tzatziki. I love, love this sauce. It's a yogurt-based, tangy, fresh, herby, healthy accompaniment, particularly to chicken and salads. I almost bought the pre-prepared Trader Joe's version but ended up making my own and am so glad I did. It's super yummy and so easy.

   Tonight we had grilled chicken/bell peppers/onions with rice, tomatoes, lettuce, and hummus in pita wraps, topped with healthy dollops of tzatziki. Ugh, it's wonderful. I have leftovers I'll probably put on a Greek salad to serve as the dressing. It's versatile, light, and refreshing. Give it a try!
