Very Good 4.9/5
(40 ratings)

I fell in love with tzatziki the first time I tried it and was on a quest to find the recipe that included those ingredients that pleased my particular palate best. This recipe is low-fat, high-protein, nutritious, smooth, Mediterranean, refreshing, light, and hopefully the best you've ever had!

http://easteuropeanfood.about.com/od/vegetables/r/ajvar.htm

Ajvar is a Croatian / Serbian roasted eggplant-sweet-pepper mixture, sometimes referred to as vegetarian caviar. It can be mashed or left chunky, depending on personal taste, and served as a relish, vegetable or spread on country-style white bread like pogacha as an appetizer. Its smoky flavor is a great match for grilled or roasted meats, especially lamb.

You can vary this recipe by adding chopped hot red chiles and onion, and substituting red wine or red wine vinegar for the lemon juice. Bulgarian kiopoolu is similar but it uses green peppers instead of red and tomatoes are added.

If you want a pretty health-conscious snack or side dish, pair with multigrain tortilla chips. Remember, you control how spicy it gets. Use no spicy chili peppers or get it as hot at as you want. I find serranos to cater my taste, but jalapenos, green or red chiles, or anything fresh will do!
