Molly's Mouthwatering Tzatziki Cucumber Sauce

Molly's Mouthwatering Tzatziki Cucumber Sauce

Molly Kooiman Barber 7

"I whipped this up the other night after a fierce craving for a gyro struck me and I was finding a lot of recipes that weren't quite what I was looking for. I wanted a creamier version of tzatziki. I put it on a tortilla with shredded chicken, cheddar, green leaf lettuce and lots of tomatoes and feta. It was sooo good I was eating it by the spoonful! You can play around with adding a little more mayo or sour cream, as my measurements may not have been exact."

  1. Chop the cucumber in a food processor until nearly liquefied; strain through a piece of cheesecloth to remove excess moisture, being careful to not over-drain and lose too much of the fresh flavor.
  2. Mix the cucumber, yogurt, garlic, sour cream, and mayonnaise together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper.

This is an awesome recipe to start from. I omitted the mayo and added dill, lemon and cavender's greek seasoning. I also used fat free yogurt that I drained using a strainer and a coffee filter....

This is very tastey! I made it with fat free yogurt, fat free sour cream, and fat free mayo and it still turned out delicious. I am planning on using it tonight on feta turkey burgers.

I skipped the mayo, excluded salt and added dill, garlic powder and onion powder instead. This was soooo good, and very easy. I used it on chicken pitas. Everyone loved it!
