Aside from the traditional gyros, lamb or souvlaki, do you have any favorite uses for tzatziki?
I LOVE a good tzatziki! Great on salmon burgers or hot-smoked salmon. I like to dip just about anything in it, especially roasted shrimp, carrot sticks, cherry tomatoes, corn chips, breadsticks, pretzels. I have skewered grape tomatoes and red onion (squarish) slices on toothpicks, with and without various deli meats, and dipped in tzatziki - yummy! Last summer I made a sandwich with peppered bacon and garden tomatoes with tzatziki, and I can hardly wait for my tomatoes to come in this summer. I also plan to try it with fried green tomatoes.
Sometimes we add the tzatziki directly into ground lamb for burgers.
Thinned out with some light cream or half and half makes a nice dressing for grilled lamb chops.
Mostly we use it as a vegetable dip or sandwich spread.
I serve with my mint and feta lamb burgers. So good
I often have it on hand for quick snack with some veggies. Its also a great dip for kale chips, toasted pitas and even potato chips.
It's really good on top of a baked potato or whipped into mashed ones.
My brother prefers it over cocktail sauce for grilled/roasted shrimp cocktail.
