Low Sodium Tzatziki Sauce

AuthorcukebookRatingDifficultyBeginner

Tzatziki is quite easy to make and includes some of my favorite things like lemon, garlic and cucumbers. Having a food processor or blender comes in handy for recipes like this, but aren't completely necessary. Also known as cacık or tarator, tzatziki is a dip, soup, or sauce which is normally found in of Southeast Europe and the Middle East. This salt-free version of tzatziki can be made under 20 minutes, and contains little to no sodium.

  1. Can’t wait to try it. The sodium content is the most important to me. There just isn’t enough of those type of recipes out there. I can’t believe my Dr. is the only HEART Dr. out there recommending these type of recipes for their patients.
