Tzatziki Sauce in stores?

Has anyone seen Tzatziki Sauce (greek, gyro sauce) in any markets or grocery stores in the Chicago area?

  1. I beleive I have seen it at Market Place in Skokie on Oakton -

    1. I have not seen it but it sounds like something Trader Joes might carry...im guessing again but bet there are a few markets in Greek town or you could buy a pint at one of the many Greek restaurants on Halstead....Ive made it before 2 cups of plain high fat yogurt ,mash a colve or 2 of garlic to a paste with a T or so of olive oil , remove the seeds and finely dice or shread a 1/2 small cucumber maybe a bit of dill if you like mix it up... add some salt and lemon juice to taste...bring on the gyros

        1. Not in Chicago per se, but if you're a Costco member, they carry a brand in a jar.

          But it's just greek yogurt (Total or equivalent), some minced garlic, cucumbers and onion - add some s&p and evoo and/or a little vinegar to taste - not much to it. (Make in advance to let the flavors meld.)

          1. Trader Joe's no longer sells it. I was there about 2 weeks ago looking for it and they told me that they were looking for a new distributer. I just bought some at Doninick's, it's pretty good. Your best bet would be to either make it yourself or pick some up at a Greek restaurant.
