Recently I discovered that Mr 2 LOVES Tzatziki! We had some friends around and I put together a simple veggie platter, along with some (store bought) Tzatziki for dipping. Mr 2 proceeded to eat the majority of the Tzatziki by dipping vegetable after vegetable into the yummy dip.
Inspired by his new-found Tzatziki love, I decided to make the yummy dip myself so I knew exactly what was going into it. My Tzatziki version is delicious and rich and contains just 3 ingredients - plain natural yoghurt, sour cream and cucumber - Mr 2's favorite vegetable.
Feel free to personalise the Tzatziki to your families taste by adapting the volumes to suit. You may prefer 50/50 yoghurt and sour cream, or even more sour cream than yoghurt for a richer treat. There's a whole cup of chopped cucumber in this recipe (please excuse my knife skills!) so you can enjoy a little bit of cucumber with every bite.
If you have leftover Tzatziki, try using it in place of mayonnaise in your favorite dishes. I've mixed some with Tuna and made a super creamy tuna mayo sandwich and have also mashed some Tzatziki into some hard boiled eggs for an even creamier version of my Egg & "Not" Mayo.
For a healthy kids snack, I surprised the boys with a Muffin Tin Meal one afternoon, complete with Tzatziki and veggie sticks for dipping. They loved it and of course Mr 2's favorite was dipping the cucumber sticks into his homemade, cucumber loaded Tzatziki!
