Tzatziki Sauce.

This traditional Greek cucumber yogurt sauce is a key ingredient in a Lamb Gyro and Greek Chicken Meatballs.  It also makes a wonderful dip to pair with a fresh veggie platter.  Served chilled, it’s so nice and light, yet full of flavor.  The fresh mint, garlic, and lemon juice play oh so nicely together.  I could go on.  Instead I think you should make some…you’ll love it.
