|Tzatziki…I served mine with pita bread|
However, it’s good to get back to French Friday’s this week. Our recipe is for Tzatziki, pronounced zat-zee-key. As I was looking up the pronunciation, I read that Tzatziki tops the list of foods people struggle to pronounce correctly. Foods such as quinoa or quesadillas. Tzatziki is a Greek dip made with cucumbers, yogurt, garlic, fresh lemon juice, olive oil and some herbs. One of my favorite ways to eat Tzatziki is on a Lamb Gyro. The recipe from Dorie was easy to put together. I used plain Greek yogurt, so I didn’t have to drain the yogurt first. That saved me several hours. This was delicious! A keeper for sure! I will definitely be making it again.
Since I wasn’t able to post about the Dieter’s Tartine last week, I will just say it was delightful! Easy and healthy. A hearty slice of bread with a mixture of cottage cheese and sour cream spread over it. Then, chopped cucumbers and tomatoes are sprinkled on top…very good! Happy Friday everyone!
