Dairy Free Tzatziki and Grain Free Crackers \\ Sweet Laurel
This Greek girl cannot get enough Tzatziki! The creamy, cucumber and dill sauce goes with everything, seriously. Whether it is grilled veggies, salad, or kebabs, the list goes on. I first started to make my own Tzatziki for my husband, who has been dairy free since childhood. This is the version I make for my him, and nearly every family gathering. Enjoy this recipe, and do me a favor: Chop up some bell peppers or celery and dip them into your Tzatziki for a snack. You will fall in love instantly!
Dairy Free Tzatziki
Yields about 2 cups
2 cups unflavored yogurt (I always use a clean, unsweetened store-bought version or I make my own coconut yogurt. You can also use goat or sheep’s milk yogurt if you tolerate it)
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup dill, chopped
1 cucumber, shredded
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
1 lemon, squeezed
1/4 cup olive oil
Cracked pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and chill for about an hour. Enjoy with veggies or my favorite grain-free crackers from Simple Mills! Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
Note about the crackers: These are seriously so good, so good that they were in my hospital bag when I gave birth to sweet Nico! I love that they are made with sprouted seeds, making it easier for digestion. The original flavor is my favorite, but they’re all super yummy.
