Tzatziki Salad from Homegrown Cucumbers

We love making and eating what we call Tzatziki Salad all year round, but with homegrown cucumbers, our Tzatziki Salad reaches a higher level of perfection. The cucumbers are coming in fast and furious now, so we will be enjoying Tzatziki Salad very frequently!

Traditional tzatziki is a dish with Greek origins that is served as a side dish or topping to meat or with bread. Shredded cucumbers, yogurt and garlic along with herbs make up the dish.

Our Tzatziki Salad is a trimmed down, short-cut method of making something wonderful very quickly. If you want a fussier dish, go ahead remove the cucumber seeds, and shred the cucumber, and use a combination of yogurt and sour cream. If you want a healthy, fast, flavorful salad, try our Tzatziki Salad.
