Tzatziki

Submitted by: JODELL77

Introduction

A greek sauce to use as a topping for chicken or any other meat, as a dip for crackers or torn pitas. I use it on pita sandwiches and wraps. It is a very flavorful sauce that takes the place of high calorie sauces such as ranch or mayo. A greek sauce to use as a topping for chicken or any other meat, as a dip for crackers or torn pitas.
