Tzatziki is a classic condiment found in Greek cooking. This recipe takes those familiar ingredients and flavors and turns them into a salad dressing. The keys to this recipe are the use of fresh herbs and feta cheese. The herbs bring a bright garden flavor and aroma and the feta provides a salty creamy punch to counter the sharp tang of the lemon and vinegar. Traditionally made with dill, this can also be made with mint, parsley, or even cilantro – find your favorite!
