I maintain that a shmear of tzatziki would even make an old shoe taste amazing….This stuff is so great that I’ve been known to eat spoonfuls of it like yogurt (which is what it is). On crackers, or as a dip for veggies or chips it’s a dreamy snack. Dollop it on grilled fish and you have a flavorful and healthy meal. Spread it on a couple slices of pumpernickel or rye bread, and then pile on the lox salmon, avocado slices, and peppery arugula leaves- and you have a world class sandwich.
