Tzatziki Sauce

A really easy and quick recipe for today.


Yogurt, fresh herbs, cucumber and olive oil are the main ingredients to make this summery sauce.

It goes perfect with any grilled meat or vegetables, fried calamari and of course gyros if you are having souvlaki. You can serve it with pita bread and olives and perhaps a bit cold.
