This incredibly tasty sauce from Ottoman Empire cuisine is an absolute favorite in Middle Eastern and some Mediterranean countries could be prepared in just a few minutes.

It is a wonderful addition to shawarma and other meat, poultry, or fish dishes. In my family, we enjoy tzatziki with lamb burgers. The sauce is addictive. Also tzatziki is great as a dip, with fresh vegetables. Pita, tandori, naan, or other flat breads served with this sauce are simply delicious.

Tzatziki is a very healthy and refreshing sauce with a lot of flavors. Don’t miss it!
