You are in for a dipping party with this Tzatziki sauce! I smear it all over my lamb burgers, turkey burgers, salads with said burgers crumbled all over them! Dip a cuke in here and it’s so refreshing! I usually spill a lot of it all over myself dipping carrots, broccoli, cucumbers, etc etc into this stuff. The combination of flavors with the cucumber, dill, mint, chives, feta, and lemon juice in the yogurt really makes this take your Greek dining to a level above. Traditionally it is the sauce you get poured all over the falafel in a pita that you get at most Greek delis. But you can start with adding a ton of this yummy flavored sauce over my turkey burgers and/or Greek lamb burgers.
To keep the cucumber from juicing up the sauce too much, cut it up and salt it in a colander. Then when it looks like it’s oozed enough, dry it off with paper towels and add it to the blender with all of the other amazing ingredients.
Yep just shove all of this stuff in a blender and you are ready to pour this over all of your favorite Greek dishes!

Michelle made me the most delightful turkey burger topped with her signature Tzatziki sauce, feta cheese and kalamata olive. It was the perfect combination of earthy and tangy! Yum!
Thank you Carol! This dressing is so good on so many different Greek main courses!
