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, 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.
