Sorry hummus but tzatziki is probably my favorite dip of all time. Though I’m not sure if it’s a dip, a sauce or a spread. I’ll drink it by the bucketload either way.

I used to think tzatziki was hard to make until a Greek co-worker told me it was easy. The tricks are not grating but cutting the cucumber and adding olive oil, lots of it.

This recipe hails from Vefa’s Kitchen and has got you ready to dip in no time, great with pita bread, chips, fish or (mushroom) gyros.
