Tzatziki Sauce

This Tzatziki Sauce is tangy and herby, super easy to make, and a healthy alternative to heavy tailgate and football party foods. #MadeWithChobani

I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like there’s often a lack of healthier snacking options at tailgates and football parties.  I mean, obviously I can get down on some fried chicken wings or some super cheesy dips with the best of them.

But every now and then it’s nice to lighten things up, no?

Enter: tzatziki sauce!  Believe me when I say that this is the perfect dip/spread/what have you. You can slather it on stuff (meat! veggies! sandwiches!), dip stuff in it (veggies! pita wedges! falafel!), and drizzle it on a Greek salad as a dressing (stay tuned later this week!).  Whip up a bowl of this stuff and your friends and taste buds will thank you.  Trust.

Check out Chobani’s recipe section for more great ideas on ramping up your tailgate!!

I found this recipe on the blog The Busy Baker.

  • 1 1/2 cups Chobani Greek yogurt (I used 0%)
  • 1/3 to 1/2 of a cucumber, grated and excess water squeezed out
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 of a lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic, grated
  • 1 tbs fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbs fresh mint, chopped
  • salt, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.

And that’s it!  Get to dipping, slathering, and drizzling!
