Greek Yogurt Tzatziki Sauce with Fresh Dill

Sometimes all it takes is one simple ingredient to really bring a dish to life.

For this yogurt tzatziki sauce, that ingredient is fresh dill.

I remember growing up we had a neighbor who had a huge dill bush in their yard. In the summertime, it always had hundreds of ladybugs living in it. As a result, I always thought eating dill was kind of strange.

A couple decades later, I’ve acquired some taste and seriously fallen in love with the hearty herb. I love using it roughly chopped and tossed with salads, on top of any kind of Mediterranean dish and of course, in tzatziki sauce.

Tzatziki sauce has origins all the way back to the Ottoman Empire. You can learn more about it’s history here.

If you can’t get your hands on fresh dill, this organic dried dill is the next best thing.

All the ingredients needed to make tzatziki sauce.

Raw Garlic (optional, but highly recommended)

Have you ever tried eating a raw garlic clove while sick? It’s so spicy and pungent and borderline painful but somehow manages to make you healthy again. Maybe it’s a placebo effect or maybe eating raw garlic really is mother nature’s purest sickness remedy.

Either way, this is the recipe you want to eat to remedy, fight, or usher out any cold. It’s packed with raw garlic but not in a noticeably aggressive way.

This greek yogurt tzatziki sauce is actually so addicting I’m finding myself making new batches multiple times a week! It’s a dynamic duo when paired with potatoes, it compliments most types of protein perfectly, and adds a cool, creaminess to roasted veggies.
