Paleo Tzatziki Sauce is going to rock your world
This recipe is dairy-free, whole30-friendly and vegan optional.
Paleo Tzatziki Sauce is a garlicky and flavorful sauce that’s made with just 6 simple real food ingredients. You know us, we’re all about simplicity here! Tzatziki is a mediterranean Greek dish that’s traditionally made with yogurt, cucumbers, garlic, lemon juice (or vinegar) and herbs and is served over grilled meats or as a dip for pita bread and veggies. The perfect accompaniment to your Greek inspired meals! To make it paleo, Whole30 compliant and dairy-free, I combined full-fat canned coconut milk and mayo to take the place of the yogurt. However, if yogurt is your thing you can certainly keep it traditional and make it with plain yogurt instead.Paleo Tzatziki Sauce - @Whole30-friendly and made with just 6 simple, real food ingredients.

Move over Ranch! Paleo Tzatziki Sauce is in the house!
While our Paleo Ranch is quite a popular recipe and might I add delicious, I’m really liking the Paleo Tzatziki Sauce as a creamy salad dressing. It has thinner consistency that works great for tossing salads in. I’m quite the fan of the Greek cuisine! In fact, it may be my favorite of all. Oh wait, curry…I love curry! But anywho, the Greek inspired salad I’ve been enjoying this week is out-of-this-world. Here’s what it’s made of: salad greens of choice, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, fresh basil & oregano, red onion, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, avocado, chicken and drizzled with Paleo Tzatziki Sauce. You gotta try it! And if you’re not whole30’ing or you don’t have a need to avoid dairy, I suggest you add a little feta as well as try our Greek Quinoa Salad with the addition of Paleo Tzatziki Sauce.
