Summer is my favorite season. I would love to live somewhere it’s summer year ’round. However, there’s just something about spring that makes my soul come alive. Everything is brand new, growing, fresh, and aglow with what’s to come. It makes sense that tzatziki is my favorite sauce for the season.
You start with a clean palette of plain Greek yogurt, and build from there, adding cucumbers, dill, garlic, and lemon juice. Already, I feel pretty refreshed. Eating tzatziki makes me think of sitting on a porch in the sunshine, eating fresh pita and vegetables, and drinking mint juleps (sidenote, the link is for a mix from the bourbon capital of the world. perfect, right?).
I hope you love this tzatziki recipe as much as I do.
