I'm going to show you what I think is the best method for making this incredibly delicious Greek yogurt and garlic sauce. One of the world's great snacks, an all-purpose condiment, this is just good on so many things. I serve mine with some homemade pita bread. As always, enjoy!

I whipped this up the other night after a fierce craving for a gyro struck me and I was finding a lot of recipes that weren't quite what I was looking for. I wanted a creamier version of tzatziki. I put it on a tortilla with shredded chicken, cheddar, green leaf lettuce and lots of tomatoes and feta. It was sooo good I was eating it by the spoonful! You can play around with adding a little more mayo or sour cream, as my measurements may not have been exact.

Roasted Garlic Tzatziki

Rating: 4.5 stars 42
I've made tzatziki loads of times, but this is my best recipe yet! The two keys are the roasted garlic, and straining the yogurt for 24 hours to make it like soft cheese. Tzatziki is great with crusty bread, french fries, pita bread, baked potatoes, or with any sort of wrap such as gyros, souvlaki, falafel or kebab. Also, I traditionally use fresh garlic, but this time I used ROASTED garlic. This made the tzatziki so much more flavorful, without that overpowering 'bite' that can come with lots of fresh garlic.

Avocado Tzatziki

A colorful California version of this classic Greek sauce. Use on your favorite pita sandwich, gyro, falafel or as a fresh veggie dip. Also try it as a condiment for spicy Indian food and curries. Make it using yogurt in place of sour cream, or even without the sour cream for a great vegan alternative!

Tzatziki Sauce -Yogurt and Cucumber Dip

Drain some low-fat yogurt overnight to make this yummy cucumber dressing. This is a delicious topping for grilled chicken or meat. It's also a great dip for veggies and pita chips. Added another clove of garlic ( werewolves in Florida). Eliminated the parsley and go a little bit heavier on the fresh dill.

Tzatziki

This is something I made with my Mom growing up. Truly a wonderful Greek accompaniment to many meals, especially meats, or as a dip for veggies and pita bread. Strained yogurt may be found at Greek groceries and specialty shops, or use the method listed in the steps. Adjust the amount of garlic to taste. Opa!
