Actually, I also wanted to enjoy our food. It's nice that everything can be low-calorie, but if you keep missing the flavor, you will quickly go back to your old standby recipes. That's where Skinnytaste came in! Her skinny tzatziki was just the thing I needed to add!
This is even a great snack with the pitas I made (cook them a bit longer for pita chips as well). It's unlike my normal dips (with cream cheese, lots of cheese, all cheese).
Tzatziki Sauce (adapted from here)
Serves: 4 (1 cup of sauce)
6 ounces fat-free Greek Yogurt
2/3 cups cucumber, peeled and grated
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped finely
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pepper
Combine the yogurt and cucumber in a small bowl. Strain in a strainer (covered) over a large bowl in the refrigerator for a few hours (I did overnight). After the yogurt-cucumber mixture has been strained, empty into a clean bowl. Stir in garlic, lemon juice, dill, salt, and pepper. Serve immediately. To store, place in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Until the next time my oven is on...
