Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki on my sausage makes me haaaaappppy!

Tzatziki is also called raita and, at my first restaurant job, triangle sauce, because we put it on the spanakopita triangles. It’s the only way I eat yogurt. Pretty much the only way I eat cucumber. And dill (except for rye bread dip). Tzatziki is a law unto itself, and it is a revelation on grilled sausage.

1/2 cup plain yogurt (I used Greek)

1/2 cup sour cream

1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

3/4 teaspoon lemon juice

3/4 teaspoon olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons dill

3/4 teaspoon minced garlic

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/4 cup cucumber (or more, to taste), peeled, seeded, and diced

Mix all ingredients together. That’s it. Viola! Put it on anything you like, especially sausage! (It’s also good as a vegetable dip, on gyros, and on falafel.)
