Tzatziki is a Greek dish that is used as a sauce for meat or as dip for pita breads and crudité. Traditionally made from plain Greek yogurt, which has been strained to thicken even more, to which crushed garlic, cucumbers, olive oil, read wine, salt and sometimes fresh dill, has been added to make a versatile, flavoursome additive to any meal.
Tzatziki appears at many mezze meals in the middle East and family recipes all add their own special ingredient. Because of that there are many different recipes, with the American version adding lemon juice, but not much can improve on an already classic dish. Except for Avocado. What doesn’t go well with that?
This new twist on an old classic, melds the sublime flavour of Avocado with a fresh Tzatziki and brings it to a new level, without losing all its classic appeal. This makes this recipe excellent as a dipping sauce, dip, meal sauce or use it as a spread in pita bread sandwich with a good feta cheese fruit and spinach salad and provolone. It really is a versatile little sauce that ensures you have no left overs.
