Vegan Tzatziki Recipe

Tzatziki Lover!

I love tzatziki sauce. It’s a Mediterranean condiment made of Greek yogurt (the traditional version). I get so excited when this sauce is paired with my Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes. But, of course, what’s better is making my own sauce to have at hand all the time. I’ve made the original version before, which I loved to death. However, curiosity sparked, and I made a vegan version of tzatziki, which was yummy!
