Tzatziki

There are very few people who aren't a fan of this Greek staple. As a spread, as a dip, as a sauce — it's the universal answer for all Grecian culinary woes. In this instance, I spread that tzatziki right across a lamb burger with all the right spices. You can imagine the action-packed flavor that occurred at the first bite — heaven. 

The only way to really make it is to make a good-sized portion, because you're going to keep coming back to it again and again.
