High Protein Tzatziki Recipe

I love using Tzatziki on rice and greek salad, when I was a kid I would mix those all together with chicken or pork skewers. It also makes a great alternative to processed dressings and dips which are only a source of empty calories. My Tzatziki also helps raw veggies go down a lot easier.

The greek yogurt adds more protein to this dip than traditional creamy dressings. This will help keep you satisfied.
