Introduction: How to Make Tzatziki Sauce

Difficult to pronounce but easy to make, Tzatziki sauce is a delicious, tangy, cool dip for the summer.  It’s a great addition to meats, falafel, sandwiches, and potatoes or as a general dip for fresh vegetables and crackers. There are slight variations in the ingredients and proportions depending on your preference for strong or mild flavors. Whip up a batch for a refreshing garnish! Here is what to expect, along with a few suggested variations:

1. Mix olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper until well combined. You can vary the taste by utilizing different ingredients like lemon juice, mint or garlic—throw everything in for a cool kick!
2. Whisk sour cream and yogurt together, and then add the oil mixture.
3. Throw in diced cucumber and chill for several hours.
4. Garnish sauce with a sprig of dill or serve on a sandwich, burger, or pita! You can use it instead of the rosemary aioli on this tasty Mediterranean flatbread:
