Tzatziki aka Grecian Sauce


A good tzatziki makes any kebab sandwich or schwarma sandwich even more delicious.  I first had tzatziki at Albasha (when we lived in Baton Rouge), except at Albasha it’s called Grecian Sauce.  Whatever you want to call it, it’s worth making.

We made chicken kebabs and served the chicken in a pita with some chopped tomatoes and onion then topped it with the sauce.
We had some sauce leftover and made fish the next night….and oh was this sauce d’lish on fish!!!
