I used to purchase Tzatziki Sauce at Costco, but don’t get me wrong, it is good. However, it’s very salty and if I can control how much salt I add to my day worth of food, I’ll be a happy camper. Thank God I do not suffer from any condition and I don’t want to start, smile! Tzatziki is a Greek sauce/dip quite easy to make, with few basic ingredients you can make it at home. You can add it to your salads or sandwiches or pretty much anything you want to add it to, smile.
