Simple Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

Simple Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

Tzatziki sauce always reminds me of summer BBQs where you slather on this delicious sauce on all the meats and veggies that comes off the grill! Here is my simple recipe perfect for the last few weeks of summer! Also a note, I make mine in smaller batches because as much as you try to squeeze out the water in the cucumber, the sauce does get a little watery. Since it is such a simple recipe, I make it as I need it!
