What is Tzatziki?

Tzatziki is a classic Greek sauce that is generally served with grilled meats or as a dip.

The traditional recipe is made with yogurt and cucumbers, but I’ve decided to forgo the yogurt in order to make a truly Paleo-friendly condiment.

Also, instead of cucumbers, I used zucchini because I had a huge zucchini that I brought home from the farmers market…and no cucumbers in sight.

Paleo Tzatziki Sauce

This sauce goes great with both meats and veggies, so feel free to pour it on top of grilled or roasted meat, toss it in a salad and use for a dressing, or even include it in a stir-fry. Let your imagination run wild.

Once you have some available, you’ll find plenty of ways to use it.
