What Goes with Tzatziki Sauce? (34 Best Foods)

If you’re a fan of tzatziki sauce, then you know that it goes well with a lot of different foods.

In fact, there are so many options that it can be hard to decide what to pair it with.

That’s why I’ve put together a list of 34 of the best foods to eat with tzatziki sauce.

From traditional Greek dishes to modern favorites, there’s something for everyone on this list.

So whether you’re looking for a light snack or a hearty meal, you’ll find the perfect option here.

What Goes with Tzatziki Sauce

What Goes with Tzatziki Sauce?

There are many options for what to serve with tzatziki sauce. Some of the most popular include pita bread, cucumber slices, carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and cherry tomatoes. Tzatziki sauce is also a great dip for fried foods such as french fries and onion rings.

Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki is a classic dip that you can use to add a punch of flavor to almost any dish.

It’s especially good on meats, but there are plenty of other dishes that pair well with the rich creaminess of tzatziki.

If you’re looking for new ways to use it, here are 34 foods that go well with tzatziki sauce:

1. A Burger

I love a good burger.

But I’m also a realist. I know that sometimes, you need to get dinner on the table fast, and that means grabbing something from the store and throwing it together.

That’s where tzatziki sauce comes in!

This stuff is great for burgers because it adds some texture and flavor without getting in the way of your burger experience.

It can be used as a spread or a dip, but it really shines when you just slather it on top of whatever patty you’re using.

2. Grilled Chicken Breast

I love to spread tzatziki sauce over my grilled chicken breast and then wrap it in a pita.

The flavor of the sauce is so comforting and delicious—it kind of reminds me of home.

I also like to add cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and lettuce to my wraps—they give the wrap extra crunchiness and texture while still letting me taste that delicious tzatziki flavor.

If you haven’t tried making grilled chicken breasts before, don’t worry!

  1. They are super easy to make—just season them with salt and pepper before putting them on your grill.
  2. Once they’re done cooking, just slice them up into strips or cubes for serving!

3. Grilled Vegetables

Grilled vegetables are one of my favorite ways to eat vegetables.

I love the combination of smoky char and bright, fresh vegetables.

Tzatziki sauce is a perfect complement to grilled vegetables.

It adds a coolness and acidity that cuts through the richness of grilled vegetables, and it’s also delicious on its own!

The best part about tzatziki is that you can use pretty much any vegetable with it: peppers, tomatoes, eggplant… you name it!

You can even make some up ahead of time and keep it in your fridge for whenever you’re craving some grilled veggies but don’t have time to get them ready.

Cooking grilled vegetables can be easy if you follow these steps:

  1. Heat up your grill or grill pan until it’s nice and hot.
  2. Toss your veggies with olive oil or coconut oil (or both!). The oil will help prevent sticking while making sure they don’t dry out during cooking (which happens easily when you’re grilling).
  3. Place the veggies on your grill and give them a few minutes to cook.
  4. Flip them over and cook for another few minutes until they’re nice and tender.
  5. Remove from heat, sprinkle with salt, and enjoy!

4. Falafel

I love making falafel because it’s fun to see what different ingredients you can add to the mix.

For example, if you want to make it more spicy, add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes!

If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding some curry powder or turmeric.

You can also add spinach or kale if you want to sneak some veggies into your diet—and they’ll be disguised by the deliciousness of the falafel itself!

Falafel is also super easy to make!

All you need are chickpeas (canned or dried), onion, garlic, cumin and salt—and some breadcrumbs if you want them to be crispy.

You just soak the beans overnight, then grind them up in your food processor until they look like paste.

Mix in your other ingredients, form them into patties and bake them at 425°F for 15 minutes on each side until they’re crispy on the outside but still soft inside (that way they’ll absorb more flavor from the sauce).

5. Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes are a staple in my kitchen.

They’re easy to make, and they’re so versatile!

They’re perfect for a quick dinner with some veggies or a salad.

You can bake them up with all kinds of toppings—cheese, bacon, sour cream, chives… the list goes on!

And they’re delicious with just butter and salt.

The thing I love most about baked potatoes is that they’re so versatile.

You can bake them plain or with some spices, but you can also make them into something extra special by adding different sauces or toppings.

One of my favorite ways to eat baked potatoes is with tzatziki sauce—it’s like greek yogurt mixed with cucumbers and lemon juice!

It’s tangy but creamy at the same time, which makes it the perfect complement to baked potatoes’ crispy skins and fluffy insides.

6. Crispy Garlic Baked Potato Wedges

Crispy Garlic Baked Potato Wedges are a perfect match for Tzatziki Sauce!

The flavor of the potato wedges complements the tangy, garlicky tzatziki in a way that’s both unexpected and delightful.

The texture of the crispy wedges works well with the creamy sauce, too.

I love them with a nice glass of wine while watching Netflix at home, or even as an appetizer at my favorite restaurant.

It’s easy to make these potatoes ahead of time, so they’re great for parties or get-togethers where you want to be able to enjoy your guests without worrying about cooking!

7. Shish Kebabs

If you’re not familiar with shish kebabs, they’re small pieces of meat (or vegetables) skewered together and cooked over an open flame.

Shish kebabs are a great way to get your kids involved in cooking because they can help you make them.

Plus, they’re fun!

You can make your own kebabs at home using whatever ingredients you want—the only limit is your imagination!

Some ideas include chicken, pork or beef with vegetables like onions, peppers or mushrooms; shrimp with bell peppers and tomatoes; or tofu cut into cubes with bell peppers and mushrooms.

You could even try making vegetarian kebabs by soaking wooden skewers overnight before cooking them on the grill!

If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding different sauces to your kebabs for extra flavor—something like tzatziki would be perfect!

8. Greek Chicken Souvlaki

This dish is pretty simple:

  1. You marinate chicken skewers in lemon juice, olive oil, and oregano and then grill them until they’re cooked through.
  2. Then you serve them with pita bread, lettuce leaves (or cabbage), tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and tzatziki sauce.


The main difference between this recipe and other chicken recipes is that instead of grilling the chicken directly over heat like you would for kebabs, you put them on skewers so they don’t fall apart when they’re flipped over onto the grill.

This makes them easier to eat!

9. Greek Chicken Gyros

When you’re looking for a food that goes well with tzatziki sauce, I can also recommend Greek Chicken Gyros.

If you’ve never had it before, it’s basically chicken and veggies served in a pita with tzatziki sauce and some other ingredients like feta cheese.

It’s super easy to make, but it does require some time—so make sure you have some time on your hands before you start cooking!

I’ve found that the texture of this dish is really important.

The texture of the pita should be soft and fluffy, but not too dry.

It should also be warm enough so that when you bite into it, the juices run down your chin.

If the pita is too soft or too dry, it won’t go well with the tzatziki sauce.

Another thing to keep in mind is whether or not you have all the ingredients on hand for this recipe.

For example, if you don’t have feta cheese or any other specific ingredients then it may not turn out as well as intended!

Overall though, I think these gyros are totally worth trying out if you haven’t already!

10. Pita Chips

I love tzatziki sauce, and I love pita chips.

So when I saw that the two of them went together, it was like a dream come true.

So what’s the best way to make this recipe?

Well, first you’ll need some pita chips.

You can either buy them at the store or make your own at home!

If you choose to make your own, just take some whole wheat pitas and cut them into triangles; then bake them until they’re crispy and golden brown!

Then you’ll need tzatziki sauce—the good stuff is made with yogurt and cucumber (and sometimes garlic), but if you don’t have time for all that chopping (or if you’re allergic to garlic), there are brands that sell ready-made versions in stores!

Another thing: if you want your chips extra crispy, try brushing them with olive oil before baking them with a sprinkling of salt on top!

It will be delicious!

Finally: use this recipe whether it’s just for yourself or for friends!

It’s great for parties because everyone loves chips and dip—it’s like an appetizer all by itself.

11. Sweet Potato Fries

You know what’s better than tzatziki sauce?

Sweet potato fries.

If you’re like me, you know that the only thing better than tzatziki sauce is a delicious side dish that goes well with it.

And what can make your meal even more special?

A food that’s already great on its own!

What makes these sweet potato fries so great is that they have a deep, rich flavor and a beautiful texture.

You’ll love the way they crunch in your mouth when you bite down on one.

Your friends will be impressed by how versatile they are—they can be served as an appetizer or main course, and they go well with just about anything!

12. Cheese Balls

I think cheese balls are another great choice because they’re easy to make and they have a great flavor and texture that matches the tzatziki sauce.

Plus, they’re super versatile—you can make them in different types of cheese, or even use leftover ingredients from other meals!

The best part about this recipe is how easy it is to adjust based on what you have on hand.

You can always add some fresh herbs or spices from your pantry if you’re feeling adventurous.

13. Fried Halloumi Cheese

Another food that goes well with tzatziki sauce is fried halloumi cheese.

This is a Greek version of mozzarella sticks, but it’s made with halloumi cheese instead.

It’s a little more difficult to fry than traditional mozzarella sticks because you have to make sure the cheese won’t melt completely, but once you do, it’s delicious!

To make fried halloumi cheese:

  1. Cut your halloumi into sticks about an inch wide and 3 inches long (just like the ones in the picture).
  2. Heat oil in a pan until hot enough for frying (you should be able to see ripples when you flick some water into the pan).
  3. Fry your halloumi for about 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy on both sides (like the ones in the picture).
  4. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately with tzatziki sauce!

14. Grilled Feta

Grilled Feta is a great food to go with tzatziki sauce.

The flavor of the charred feta is perfect for the tangy, creamy tzatziki sauce.

It’s a little salty and sour, and it has a crunchy texture that makes it a good match for the sauce.

Grilled Feta is also easy to make—you just need feta cheese, olive oil, and some grill-friendly veggies like bell peppers or zucchini.

The hardest part is peeling off the plastic wrap around the block of feta!

You can serve this dish on its own or as an appetizer before dinner.

If you want something light but filling, try serving it with pita bread or crackers (or both).

15. Zucchini Chips

Zucchini chips are a great way to get more veggies in your diet.

They’re super crispy and crunchy, and they have a great texture that makes them perfect for dipping!

When I’m having zucchini chips, I often like to pair them with tzatziki sauce.

It has the perfect tartness and acidity to cut through the saltiness of the chips.

It also has a nice creamy texture that pairs well with the crunchy zucchini.

If you’re looking for an extra boost of flavor, try adding some fresh herbs like mint or parsley to your tzatziki sauce before serving it up with your chips.

You can also add some lemon juice or dried oregano if you’re feeling adventurous!

And if you want even more nutrients in your dish, add some spinach leaves between each chip—they’ll soften up from being heated but won’t lose their bright green color (so you’ll still get all those vitamins).

16. Stuffed Tomatoes

Stuffed tomatoes are a great side dish, or even a main meal if you want to go for it.

They’re super easy to make, and they’re also really versatile.

I love the way the creamy tzatziki sauce complements the juicy tomato filling.

You can use any type of tomato you like—heirloom is my favorite!

I usually end up using two or three different types of tomatoes in one recipe, because each one has its own unique flavor and texture that I want to highlight.

It’s fun to experiment with different combinations!

One thing that makes stuffed tomatoes extra delicious is getting them nice and firm before you stuff them.

If your tomatoes are too soft, they’ll fall apart when you cut them open—and then all your stuffing will go everywhere!

So make sure to pick out firm-but-ripe tomatoes for this recipe.

17. Roasted Carrots

Roasted carrots are great with tzatziki sauce.

They’re the perfect combination of sweet and savory, so they make a great side dish for any meal.

  • First, let’s talk about flavor. I love how roasting brings out the natural sweetness in carrots, but it also gives them a little bit of a spicy kick. The tangy tzatziki sauce balances out this sweetness perfectly, so you don’t feel like you’re eating something too sweet.
  • Next up: texture! The texture of roasted carrots is really unique—you get some crunchy bits around the edges, but then there’s also some softer parts when you bite into it. This makes it fun to eat! You can’t get bored with these guys!
  • And then there’s difficulty. Roasting is easy as pie! All you need is olive oil, salt, pepper and some carrots—and then you’ll be good to go! There’s no baking required either—just put them on a baking sheet and stick them in an oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes (or until they start smelling delicious).

You can use any kind of vinegar or lemon juice instead of plain white vinegar if you want to add extra flavor .

You can also add some garlic, onions or whatever else you have lying around in your kitchen.

These guys are versatile!

You can even eat them raw if you’re in a hurry—they taste great when they’re fresh and crunchy from being freshly roasted.

18. Potato Chips

Potato chips are great with tzatziki because they have a bit of a salty flavor, which pairs well with the tangy dip.

It also helps that they’re crunchy—that’s one thing I love about potato chips: their texture.

There are so many different types of chips you can make with tzatziki sauce, but my favorite is when you use pita bread as your base.

The pita bread is crunchy and soft at the same time, which makes for the perfect chip.

You can also top it off with some crumbled feta cheese or even chicken if you want something more filling!

19. Breadsticks

Breadsticks are great because they’re crunchy and have a bit of a chew to them—sort of like cucumbers, but also not like cucumbers at all.

They add a really nice texture to the dish that most people don’t expect from tzatziki sauce.

You can also use the breadsticks in other ways: by themselves or with other flavors added to them (like garlic or onion powder).

If you’re feeling ambitious, you could even try mixing them in with your favorite dessert!

If you’re feeling creative, why not try some of these other ingredients?

Garlic is always delicious with breadsticks, as well as any type of cheese (such as feta).

20. Oven-baked Potatoes

This is one of my favorite ways to cook potatoes.

They’re super easy, and they taste amazing!

All you need is an oven, a baking sheet or two, a few baking potatoes (or sweet potatoes), some olive oil (or butter), salt and pepper, and whatever other spices you want to add in.

You can also add things like cheese or bacon if that suits your fancy.

21. Oven-Baked Squash Balls

Oven-Baked Squash Balls

I’ve been loving making these oven-baked squash balls lately.

They’re super easy to make, and they make a great side dish or appetizer.

The best part is that they’re also really versatile—you can add in whatever you want!

My favorite combination is feta cheese, fresh mint, and a little bit of garlic powder.

If you want something a little more interesting, try adding nuts or seeds like pine nuts or sunflower seeds.

You can also experiment with different sauces.

My favorite sauce is tzatziki sauce—it’s got this really refreshing yogurt base that goes perfectly with the nutty flavor of the squash balls.

I like to add in some lemon juice, garlic powder, and dill for extra flavor!

22. Jalapeño Poppers

If you’re looking for a food to go with tzatziki sauce that will make your taste buds do a happy dance, look no further than jalapeño poppers!

  • The first thing to consider is the flavor of the jalapeños. If they’re too spicy, they’ll overwhelm the delicate flavor of the tzatziki sauce. On the other hand, if they aren’t spicy enough, then your mouth won’t get much satisfaction from them.
  • Next up is texture: if your poppers are soft and mushy instead of crispy and crunchy, then they’ll just fall apart in your mouth and not give you any satisfaction at all.
  • Finally, consider how difficult it is to make these treats. If it takes too long or requires too many ingredients or skills, then you might want to reconsider making them yourself! But if they’re easy enough even for someone who isn’t an experienced cook (like me!), then go ahead and give ’em a try!

You can use any kind of jalapeño for this recipe—I prefer green ones because they have less heat than red ones but still have that nice kick of spice without being overwhelming (if you want something less spicy , try using a milder jalapeño, like the Banana Pepper).

You can also use this recipe as a template to experiment with other peppers—like bell peppers or serrano chiles—and see what kind of flavor combinations you come up with!

I’ve used this method for making spicy Sriracha mayo on sandwiches before, and it always turns out great.

23. Corn on The Cob

One of my favorite ways to eat tzatziki is with corn on the cob.

The only problem with this is that sometimes the corn can be a little tough or dry.

But here are some tips for making sure your corn stays nice and tender while also getting all the flavor you need from your tzatziki sauce:

  • Start by soaking your corn in water for at least 20 minutes before grilling it. This will make sure that when you cook it, all of those delicious juices stay inside instead of running out onto your grill or into your pan!
  • Make sure you don’t overcook the corn! It should still be slightly firm when you take it off of the grill so that it doesn’t fall apart when you try to eat it. If you like your corn softer, just let it sit for about five minutes after cooking before dressing it up with tzatziki sauce.
  • Don’t forget about seasoning! Sprinkle salt and pepper over top if desired (or any other combination of spices), then add your tzatziki sauce. Be sure to let the corn cool before dressing it up with the sauce so that you don’t burn yourself!

24. Pasta Salad

Pasta Salad is a great dish to make when you’re looking for something easy and delicious.

It also works well with a variety of sauces, so you can use whatever you have on hand, or try something new.

I like to use tzatziki sauce because it’s light, but has a lot of flavor.

The best part?

Pasta salad is a great way to get more veggies into your diet!

If you’re not sure where to start, here are some tips:

  • Use whole grain pasta for extra nutrition and texture (I like brown rice pasta)
  • Add any vegetables you want! You can even use leftover cooked vegetables from other meals
  • If your salad looks like it needs more color, add some chopped red bell pepper or radishes
  • Serve with tzatziki sauce or any other dressing or dip that sounds good!

25. Zucchini Fritters

I love zucchini fritters.

They’re so easy to make and you can use whatever ingredients you have on hand, which is great if you’re trying to be more adventurous in the kitchen.

The fritters are also really versatile—you can have them as a side dish or as an appetizer, or even a snack!

The texture is soft but crispy, which makes them really satisfying.

The flavor depends on what kind of dressing you use—they’re delicious with tzatziki sauce, but they also work well with ranch dressing or lemon juice.

You can switch up the ingredients depending on what sounds good to you.

For example, if you want something spicy, add some cayenne pepper or jalapeños!

They take about 15 minutes to make (and 5 of those are spent waiting for everything else), so if you want to try these out at home and don’t have much time, this is a great recipe for you!

26. Cucumber Salad

Cucumber salad is a great food for summer because it’s not too heavy, but it still has a lot of flavor.

It’s also super easy to throw together, and you can use whatever ingredients you have on hand.

And even though it’s light, it’s still filling enough to satisfy your hunger.

If you’re looking for some tips on how to make cucumber salad, here are my favorite ways:

  • I like to slice my cucumbers nice and thin so they marinate more quickly and evenly in the dressing.
  • I always add some red onion to mine because I love the crunch and color it adds to the dish.
  • One of my favorite things about making this salad is that you can really customize it based on what kind of dressing or sauce you want to use. For example, if you want something tangy and sour like tzatziki sauce then go with Greek yogurt as your base instead of mayonnaise or sour cream!

27. Asian Slaw

Asian Slaw is a wonderfully delicious side dish that goes well with tzatziki sauce.

It’s full of flavor, texture, and color—but it’s also super easy to make.

It only takes a few minutes to prepare and cook, but it will make your meal taste amazing.

You can also get creative with what you put in it!

You can add whatever vegetables you want or even mix up the dressing if you want something different.

I like to use cabbage and carrots because they’re crunchy and sweet and feel great on my teeth when I bite down on them—but feel free to experiment!

I think this salad would be really good at parties or as an appetizer for dinner parties because it’s light enough that people won’t feel stuffed after eating it—but it’s also hearty enough that people can eat a lot without feeling sick afterward!

28. Pepperoni Pizza Rolls

I’m obsessed with pepperoni pizza rolls.

They’re so easy to make!

Just roll out some pizza dough, add pepperoni and sauce, roll them up into little logs, bake them in the oven until they’re golden brown, then cover them in tzatziki sauce when you serve them!

They’re great for game night, or just when you want something quick and easy for dinner.

I love them because they have such a satisfying crunchy texture and flavor that really complements the tangy tzatziki sauce.

Plus, the ingredients are simple: just dough, cheese and sauce—you can get creative with how you top them off!

If you like this recipe idea but don’t want to make pizza rolls, try making some mini pizzas or even a regular-sized one on your grill instead (just watch out for flare-ups).

If you don’t have time to make dough from scratch or don’t feel like rolling it out yourself (which is totally understandable), you can use store-bought pizza dough instead.

29. Pretzels

Pretzels are crispy, crunchy, and salty—which makes them perfect for dipping into this cool, creamy dip.

See Also: 47 Dips for Pretzels I Can’t Resist

You can use any kind of pretzel you like—the bigger the better!

The taste of pretzels is so distinctive that it really takes center stage here.

I recommend using a saltier variety if you have the choice—it’ll bring out the flavor of the tzatziki even more.

Of course, texture is important too—you want something that’s crunchy enough to withstand being dipped into the tzatziki without getting soggy.

And while you might think that all pretzels have the same texture, there are actually lots of different kinds out there!

Some are soft and chewy; others are harder and crunchier than your average bagged cereal.

If you’re going for a softer texture in general, then a softer pretzel might be best for your purposes.

But if you want something with more bite (and therefore more resilience), then go for something harder and crunchier!

30. Kale Chips

Kale chips are not hard to make, but they do take a little bit of time to prepare—so make sure you have about 20 minutes before guests arrive if you’re planning on serving these alongside your tzatziki dip.

These chips are crunchy and salty, which is why they go so well with the creamy and tangy flavor of tzatziki sauce.

The best part is that they’re made from green vegetables (which means they’re full of nutrients), so when you make these for your next party or get-together, everyone will feel good about what they’re eating!

You can also use different types of kale or other vegetables like broccoli or carrots if you want to change up the recipe a bit—just make sure whatever vegetables you choose are fresh and crisp so they’ll hold up during cooking without getting mushy or overcooked (that’s not very inviting).

31. Alabama Fire Crackers

I love Alabama Fire Crackers.

They’re spicy and crispy, and they make a great snack when you’re in the mood for something crunchy.

But I think they’re even better when you pair them with tzatziki sauce!

Try mixing a tablespoon of tzatziki sauce into your next batch of Alabama Fire Crackers—it’s like an explosion of flavor in your mouth!

32. Cornbread Muffins

Cornbread Muffins

I like to make these muffins for the weekend, because they’re perfect for breakfast or lunch—or even dinner if you’re feeling like something a little more indulgent.

They’re really easy to make, too!

You can use whatever ingredients you have in your fridge.

Throw in some feta cheese if you want to add a little extra flavor and texture.

Or maybe some chopped olives or peppers.

Try adding some fresh dill or thyme if you want to get fancy.

The only thing about this recipe is that you might have to practice making it a few times before you get it just right.

Once you do though, it’s worth it!

33. Mac & Cheese Balls

The great thing about these balls is that you can use whatever cheese you have on hand, so if you’re in the mood for something extra-creamy, just go with cheddar or mozzarella.

If you want something more mild or want to stretch the budget a little bit further, consider using ricotta or farmer’s cheese instead.

As far as texture goes, this recipe works best when your macaroni pieces are small—you don’t want them to be too big because they’ll get mushy when baked.

You also want to make sure there are no hard bits of macaroni left over from cooking (if there are, let them soak for another minute or so before draining).

The other ingredients in this dish are pretty basic: onions, garlic powder (or fresh garlic), salt & pepper for seasoning…and some bread crumbs!

But don’t let their simplicity fool you—they add an incredible amount of flavor and texture that makes these balls absolutely irresistible!

34. Buffalo Wings

Who doesn’t love Buffalo wings?

They’re the perfect finger food for any party or gathering.

And they go great with tzatziki sauce!

The sauce adds a nice cooling contrast to the spicy wings.

Buffalo wings are pretty easy to make, and there are lots of different recipes out there.

You can use whatever kind of hot sauce you like, and add as much or as little as you want.

I like to use a mixture of cayenne pepper and Franks hot sauce.

Some tips for making the perfect Buffalo wings:

  • Use fresh chicken wings for the best flavor and texture.
  • Don’t overcook the wings or they’ll be tough.
  • Coat the wings in sauce evenly.

There are lots of different occasions where Buffalo wings would be a great dish to serve.

They’re perfect for game day, or any other time you want to serve up some tasty finger food.

What Vegetables to Serve with Tzatziki?

Tzatziki is a delicious, creamy sauce made of yogurt and cucumber.

It’s perfect for dipping vegetables, but you can also use it as a dressing on salads or even as a topping for grilled meats.

Here are some great vegetable options to serve with tzatziki:

1. Broccoli

Broccoli is a great vegetable to serve with tzatziki because it’s both very healthy and very flavorful.

It has a nice texture, and pairs well with the creamy tzatziki sauce.

2. Asparagus

Asparagus is another healthy, delicious vegetable that pairs well with tzatziki.

You can either steam or roast it, depending on your preference.

3. Cucumber

The most popular vegetable to serve with tzatziki is cucumber.

It’s often used as a garnish and can be eaten raw or cooked, but it’s best when it has been peeled, seeded and sliced into thin pieces.

The cucumber should be chilled before you use it so that it is crisp and refreshing.

Another option is to use pickled cucumbers instead of fresh ones if you’re serving this dish warm or cold.

4. Fennel

Another common vegetable used with tzatziki is fennel.

This vegetable has a strong flavor that can be overpowering if you’re not careful when pairing it with other foods, so try mixing it in small amounts with other vegetables such as carrots or celery for a delicious side dish!

5. Carrots

Carrots are a great addition to your Greek meal.

They are sweet and crunchy, so they’re a nice contrast to the salty tzatziki sauce.

You can cut them into sticks or slices, depending on your preference and how much time you have to prepare dinner that night.

6. Bell Peppers

Bell peppers are another delicious vegetable option for serving with tzatziki sauce.

They have a softer texture than carrots, so they’re great for blending into soups or stews as well as salads or dips like this one!

7. Radishes

Radishes are good with tzatziki because they have a nice bite and crunch, which pairs well with the creamy texture of the dip.

And, their color is bright and beautiful, which makes them a great addition to any meal.

8. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are also a good choice because they have a nice bite and crunch, which pairs well with the creamy texture of the dip.

Plus, their color is bright and beautiful, which makes them a great addition to any meal.

9. Onion

Onions are a staple ingredient in Greek cuisine.

They pair perfectly with the tartness of the yogurt and the crunchiness of cucumbers.

You can either slice them thinly and layer them on top of your pita bread or chop them up for an easy topping for chicken or fish.

10. Zucchini

Zucchini is another popular Greek vegetable that pairs well with this sauce because it’s so light and fresh tasting.

Chop up a few slices and add them to your salad or use them as a filling for grilled cheese sandwiches!

What Bread to Serve with Tzatziki?

Tzatziki is one of those sauces that you can use to liven up any meal, from a quick lunch to a fancy dinner.

If you’re looking for great options for serving tzatziki with your favorite breads, I have some suggestions!

Here are my top three:

1. Pita Bread

Pita bread is the perfect choice for scooping up the tzatziki sauce in every bite.

The soft texture of the bread will hold up well against the sauce, so you won’t have to worry about tearing it apart.

Plus, pita bread has a nice crunchy exterior that adds another dimension of texture to your meal!

2. Naan Bread

Naan bread is also great for scooping up tzatziki sauce because it’s soft enough to hold up during eating but also has enough substance that it won’t fall apart from being so thin.

This makes it ideal for dipping into the sauce or spreading onto pieces of meat or vegetables before adding them into your sandwich!

You can even use naan as a substitute for pita if you want something even softer than what pita bread offers.

3. Flatbread

Flatbread is a delicious, crispy flatbread that can be served as an appetizer or even as a main course.

It comes in many different flavors and varieties, so you’re sure to find one you love!

Can You Use Tzatziki as Salad Dressing?

Yes, you can use tzatziki as salad dressing.

If you’re not familiar with tzatziki, it’s a Greek sauce made from greek yogurt, cucumbers, garlic and dill.

It’s traditionally served alongside gyros or other grilled meats but is also delicious on its own.

You can use tzatziki as salad dressing by adding some olive oil and lemon juice to the sauce and whisking until smooth.

Then add salt and pepper to taste.

You can also add some capers or even some finely chopped scallions if you want to amp up the flavor profile even more!

Tzatziki makes an excellent dressing because it has just enough acidity to cut through the richness of the oil without being overpowering like vinegar can sometimes be.

And if you’re using homemade yogurt instead of store-bought sour cream (which is often loaded with additives), then this is one of the healthiest dressings around!
