Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki sauce is like dieting crack for me. I am a sauce person. You can count on me to order extra sauce on the side or three types of dipping sauce at a drive through. The only problem with my sauce obsession is that it can pack on tons of unnecessary calories. One tablespoon of ranch or barbecue sauce can be almost 100 calories! Yikes! In steps, tzatziki sauce. It goes with so many different foods as a delicious accoutrement. The best part? One tablespoon of this sauce is only 10 calories.

Here's how to make it:

You will need a lemon, 8 oz plain non-fat greek yogurt, 2 cloves garlic, dill and a cucumber.

Add your greek yogurt to a bowl and then begin grating your cucumber with a cheese grater. I'm not a huge fan of the skin of the cucumber, so I grate it off with a vegetable grater prior to using the cheese grater.

Next, chop the dill and add 2 tbsp to the mixture.

Follow by finely chopping your cloves of garlic and mix it into the dip. Add 1 tsp of lemon juice and mix. You can also add salt and pepper to taste if you like, but I think it's pretty good on it's own!
