If you are anything like my family, adding a “dip” to dinner makes everyone happy! My kids started enjoying this creamy sauce during one of our many, many trips to one of our favorite restaurants, Zoes Kitchen. I decided to come up with my own recipe so they can eat it at home with vegetables, pita bread or Greek Chicken pitas. You can make this in minutes and the ingredients are things I usually already have in my fridge and pantry!

Is this made like traditional Tzatziki?

This recipe is our version of a classic. Traditionally, tzatziki is made with a Greek yogurt base. I chose to use sour cream and mayo in our recipe because those are two items I always have on hand! You can easily sub the two out for 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt.

How long can I store this in the refrigerator?

I recommend that you store this sauce no longer than 3 days in the refrigerator. It is not recommended to freeze this sauce.
