Paleo Tzatziki Sauce
Mediterranean food is one of my favorites and i love a good tzatziki sauce, so I thought I would try out making a dairy free option. This is easy when you have awesome brands like Kite Hill selling dairy free unsweetened yogurt at your local grocery store! This is a such a great dip to mix up for any Greek dish, perfect for chicken kabobs! We recently served it with Greek Tacos and it was so good!
All you need are a few fresh ingredients to mix this dip up and you probably already have most of them on hand! I definitely recommend making this with fresh dill and garlic verses dried, it adds so much flavor to it.
Since cucumbers hold so much liquid to them you will want to make sure to let them sit on paper towels or a cheese cloth then ring out the extra liquid. This will prevent your dip from becoming to watery once mixed up.
2 cups Kite Hill Plain and Unsweetened Yogurt (available at Sprouts and most health food stores)
1 cup cucumber, shredded or diced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
First drain the excess liquid from the shredded or diced cucumber by placing on a cheese cloth or paper towels. Let it sit for a couple minutes, then over a sink or bowl squeeze the extra liquid from the cucumber. You can also do this same process with the yogurt, however it isn’t necessary. You can however, pour any extra liquid on top of the yogurt out before combining with other ingredients.
Next in a medium sized bowl combine all of the ingredients, stirring to combine. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes before serving. You can serve this dip alongside any of your favorite greek foods. It makes a wonderful dipping sauce for meat and vegetable kabobs. You can also serve with Greek style tacos or homemade pita chips.
