Tzatziki

There is a restaurant in town that used to serve this Greek burger, and let me tell you, this thing was on point! I was dreaming of it recently and chatting with a friend about taking her there to try it when I pulled up their menu online and to my dismay, the Greek burger was gone! So, what is a food blogger to do except recreate it herself!

To do so, we shall start with the tzatziki. Making a good tzatziki is important because it needs to compliment other flavors without being overpowering which is a delicious, delicate balance. For me, it has to have some feta in it and just a touch of acidity to bring the whole thing together. It’s actually a lot easier to make then you may anticipate, draining the cucumber is about the hardest part and all that entails is a little time.

This Greek sauce is good on about everything from veggies to pita chips and burgers to chicken. You can serve it on the side or use it as a marinade.. you name it, you can tzatziki it! Plus, let’s face it.. tzatziki is just really fun to say!
