Rachel’s Flavorful Homemade Tzatziki Sauce for Clean Eating!
You should make this dip, and start calling it YOUR “secret sauce”. Tzatziki will add so much tangy FLAVOR to just about everything. You’re going to be hailed as a hero in your kitchen!
Try this as a:
Fresh veggie dip for cucumbers, bell pepper slices, broccoli florets, cauliflower, carrots, celery, tomato wedges. Great for everyday snacks, or party trays!
Healthy alternative to mayonnaise on sandwiches.
Or a Salad Dressing.
Excellent “chip dip” for your homemade dehydrated snacks like dehydrated sweet potato, and zucchini chips. Or even healthy chips, crackers, or pita chips.
Serve alongside baked fish. (YUM!)
Excellent as a sauce for: burgers, meatballs, pork chops, chicken wings, baked chicken thighs etc. (Especially great with grilled meat!)
Baked zucchini-fri dip.
Use the tzatziki sauce as a baked potato topping instead of sour cream! Or add some to your mashed potatoes (you’re welcome!)
