Tzatziki is an appetizer in both Greek and Cypriot cuisine. Its main ingredient is Greek strained yogurt which gives it the creamy texture,
to which grated cucumber, garlic, dill, olive oil, pepper and salt are added. It is usually served on the side with meat. It also goes very well with fried or baked potatoes.
It can also be eaten with bread, pitta and as a meze for ouzo or tsipouro. Tzatziki is the most common sauce that is served with souvlakia or gyros.
