Greek Yogurt Tzatziki

IMG_2163

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and all the snow has melted around our house. It’s only the middle of February and it feels like the first day of spring already! I can’t wait to get outside for a walk today and breathe in some fresh spring air. I spent all morning giving our house a head to toe bath so that every room is tidied and clean and it feels amazing. I also just finished my latest DIY project! Framed art for above our bedroom headboard. (coming soon!) Then I can’t wait to show you our bedroom before and after pictures too!

Anyways like I was telling you a few days ago, last weekend we had our friends over for a huge Greek feast. We made five different greek dishes and they were all fantastic, including my favourite Greek Salad Recipe. My next favourite dish was the homemade greek yogurt tzatziki we made. Since the grocery store was out of pita’s, we used naan bread instead and I don’t think I’d ever go back to pita bread!!! We quickly heated each piece in a pan over medium heat with a little oil and cracked sea salt and I couldn’t get enough of the salty, chewy goodness! Good thing the tzatziki was so healthy, that way I didn’t feel so guilty packing down 7 pieces of bread with it! I use greek yogurt in so many recipes because it is loaded with protein, a great source of calcium, helpful for digestion and your immune system and just so darn tasty. This recipe was super easy and quick to make….. which is always a bonus when you have two grown men to feed while waiting for the main course! I hope you like it!
