Tzatziki

6 – Tzatziki
This versatile Greek yogurt sauce tastes as cool as the cucumbers it’s made from. Using nonfat yogurt makes it much lighter than traditional tzatziki and fresh mint and dill give our recipe extra zing. Try it on grilled meats, spicy foods, or use it to wake up your baked potatoes!
