This super easy protein packed tzatziki dip is the perfect accompaniment to your crudite platter, to dress your favorite salad, or over chicken. Disclosure: I was contacted by Chobani to develop a recipe using their Greek yogurt, I was not compensated for my time or ingredients. All opinions are my own.
But how on earth could I just choose one way to use this thick, creamy, and tangy yogurt? I’m currently swimming in farmers market vegetables, so I thought I’d try to make something to dip fresh vegetables (and yummy multigrain crackers) into. After a second of thinking my favorite Greek topping came to mind…… tzatziki!
Have you had Greek tzatziki sauce/dip before? It’s really the most refreshing & delicious creamy topping to anything really, but is particularly delicious over grilled chicken and vegetables. Add a sprinkle of feta cheese and you’re golden. I know this isn’t your typical tzatziki sauce, no dill in sight! But dill is one of those flavors that I just can’t take in large amounts, and since this is my own recipe, I do what I want! So really, you need to spend just 5 minutes to toss this together and it might just change your life annnnnd keep you full because it’s chalk full of protein. I know, you’re welcome!
