Tzatziki is a Greek sauce commonly served on pitas and as a condiment. In your clean eating plan, it’s great as a flavorful, low-fat, high-protein veggie dip. Make a batch at the beginning of the week to store in your refrigerator to snack on when you get the munchies.
Clean Eating: Tzatziki Dip
2 C. Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cucumber, diced finely
1 Tbsp. salt
2 tsp. fresh dill weed
Ground black pepper and salt to taste
Peel cucumber and dice finely. Place them in a colander and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. salt. Press down with something heavy, which allows for the moisture to be drawn out. Wait 30 minutes. Spread on a paper towel.
In food processor or blender, coarsely chop the cucumbers, lemon juice, garlic, dill and pepper. Stir in yogurt. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill your tzatziki dip well before serving.
