Homemade Tzatziki Sauce With Herbed Pita Chips
Recipe and photos by Launie Kettler
We’re not going to lie. This tzatziki is utterly addictive. Sincerely addictive.
Summery cucumber, lightly spicy radishes, and fresh dill along with sunny and citrusy lemon juice create a dip you’ll want on the table for a snack or appetizer several nights a week. Both cucumbers and radishes work double time in this recipe, because they show up in grated and diced form. Double your vegetables, double your fun!
