Tzatziki - Greek Yogurt Sauce

This sauce is so easy to make - so low in PointsPlus - and it tastes good on fish, chicken, vegetables and more! Whip up a batch and put some zing into your food. Cut up some veggies and enjoy a refreshing healthy snack. Use this instead of mayo on your wrap. Go crazy with this delicous sauce!

TZATZIKI

1 cup peeled, seeded and grated cucumber (this is the hardest part)
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup plain FF yogurt
1/2 tsp dill weed
2 tsp lemon juice
1 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
1/4 tsp salt


Salt the cucumber with 1/8 tsp of salt and allow to sit for 20 minutes. Squeeze out excess water.
Mix all ingredients together. Chill for an hour to let flavors come together.

1/2 cup of this is only 1 PointsPlus.

Thanks for sharing. I just made this and put it in the fridge. I plan to put it over grilled chicken breast later tonight. Yum!

Nice recipe but you missed a major component. A lot of olive oil. There is no dill or lemon juice in Tzatziki in Greece.
