Tzatziki Sauce

Most people associate cucumbers with fresh salads, vinaigrettes, and dill dip, but I like to pair it with something savory in the form of tzatziki sauce. Traditionally served as a Greek condiment with lamb, tzatiki sauce is a great pairing for whatever protein is on your plate and is the perfect summertime sauce because it's refreshing and light.
