Tzatziki sauce makes my heart (and my taste buds) happy. It is so fresh and bright. Eat any leftover sauce with pita bread or crackers or use it in place of salad dressing.

Gluten-Free: Use Gluten Free pitas, lettuce wraps, or serve as salad.

Vegetarian: Omit chicken.

Paleo: Make a Paleo friendly Tzatziki sauce. Use Paleo Friendly pitas, lettuce wraps, or serve as salad. Omit feta.
