Tzatziki Sauce (Home Cookin’)

Eating chicken breast can get pretty boring after a while (or a day). I needed something that would add a ton of flavor to an otherwise mundane meal. Sure, a few pats of butter would help, but I wanted a healthier option. Solution: Tzatziki! It’s a cool, refreshing Greek sauce that packs a powerful flavor punch and tastes great with so many different things. I just got a new mini food processor in the mail — time to test it out. After a couple of attempts where I failed to remove all of the moisture from the cucumbers (result: watery tzatziki), I finally got it right. I salted the cucumbers to drain some of the water, then used a fine mesh strainer after it was processed to get rid of the rest. Once it was mixed with the Greek yogurt, it was thick and creamy. Opa!
