This sauce goes great on shawarma, gyro and many other Mediterranean inspired dishes. I love to whip this up and just munch on it as a dip with my favorite pita chips when just hanging out with the family. Check out the short video and follow the simple instructions to be on your way to making this authentic Tzatziki Sauce for your next foodlicious adventure.
Serve with pita chips.
Grate the cucumber and sprinkle ½ tsp salt on it. Let it sit for 10 minutes, this helps remove excess water.
