Tzatziki is a yogurt-based sauce or dip found in cuisines from Southeast Europe and the Middle East that makes a great side dish or dip for crudités, toasted pitas or homemade kebabs.
Traditionally Tzatziki is made with yogurt and mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt and olive oil. Sometimes it also contains vinegar or lemon juice and herbs such as dill, mint, parsley or thyme.
In this version, we shake things up by swapping the yogurt for Kefir, which gives the tzatziki a gentle “zing”. Kefir, a naturally fermented cultured milk drink, is also richer in live cultures and higher in protein than conventional yogurt.
