Tzatziki Sauce is a Mediterranean recipe commonly served to accompany grilled meats. It tastes wonderful on fish and with poultry too and is perfect for keto. This recipe calls for English cucumbers, also known as seedless cucumbers, and are less bitter than regular cucumbers.

Traditionally, full fat greek yogurt is used as the base for Tzatziki Sauce. However, sour cream has a similar tart flavor but is lower in carbohydrate and higher in fat than greek yogurt. The added avocado oil further increases the ketogenic ratio. Enjoy with our Beef and Lamb Kafta recipe!
