Tzatziki is typically made with Greek yogurt, which is a thicker yogurt as compared to the regular one. But feel free to use any yogurt that you like. If your yogurt isn’t thick to begin with, be sure to squeeze out the extra juice from the grated cucumber. I make this dip a lot with my homemade yogurt that I make in my pressure cooker, Instant Pot. The consistency of my homemade yogurt is in between of a greek yogurt and regular one, so, using two paper towels,  I squeeze out some juices from the grated cucumber and the result is perfect!

Mediterranean Feast:

I always make this easy Tzatziki sauce whenever I make Chicken Shawarma or Grilled Lamb Chops. I make a Greek salad and hummus, get some store-bought Pita bread and we enjoy our Greek Feast! My kids love dipping their Shawarma wrap in the Tzatziki!
