Homemade Tzatziki

Tzatziki dip on platter

Tzatziki is a yoghurt-based dip or condiment that is popular in Turkey and Greece. We love it in our house as you can put it with so many things. We often have it with grilled salmon or even just mixed through some brown rice for an easy dinner. I always have the ingredients in the fridge and it’s so quick to throw together and keep on hand for when the need arises. Coming into the festive season it’s a great dip recipe for when you’re entertaining and want to add it to your charcuterie board.
