If you love souvlaki, I hope you’ve been treating your family to homemade meals with fresh pitas stuffed with souvlaki, Greek salad and tasty tzatziki. I love tzatziki and find that it goes so well with a variety of things, Greek or not. The only thing about this yummy spread is that a small container will set you back about $4 in these parts, so it isn’t very frugal living friendly, to say the least.
The good news is that tzatziki can be frugal living friendly and whipped up in a pinch using a few simple ingredients: plain yogurt, cucumber and minced garlic. That’s it. Just combine the ingredients and chill.
For best results, grate your cucumber and then set it in a strainer so that you can remove the excess water. Also, use full fat plain yogurt for a thick and creamy spread your family will love.
