135.4…Easy Tzatziki

To go with the Greek food I served last weekend, I made an easy Tzatziki dip. It goes so perfectly with the Marinated Lamb Kebabs (or chicken kebabs)!

Easy Tzatziki (8 servings)

Recipe Courtesy Barefoot Contessa

  • 2 (7-ounce) containers Greek yogurt (recommended: Fage Total)
  • 1 hothouse cucumber, unpeeled and seeded
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Place the yogurt in a medium bowl. Grate the cucumber on a box grater and squeeze the grated cucumber with your hand to remove some of the liquid. Add it to the yogurt along with the sour cream, lemon juice, vinegar, dill, garlic, salt and pepper and stir.

Last night’s dinner included the rest of the Stouffer’s Lasagna and a salad. A repeat of the night before. Exciting.

This morning’s breakfast included a new item: Thomas’ Bagel Thins in Cinnamon Raisin.

I toasted it and smeared it with Teddie Super Chunky peanut butter.

It was ok. I REALLY love cinnamon raisin bagels but I don’t love all the calories in those big, delicious, spongy ones. I guess I wanted it to taste more like those but it didn’t really. I guess I can’t complain too much since they are only 110 calories. I don’t think I’d repurchase these.

I took the kids to school, went to a doctor appointment and then came home to do some baking for an upcoming blog post.

Lunch was a salami sandwich on rye bread with spicy mustard, veggies and Jalapeno Yogurt Dip.

I’m going to pick the kiddos up and get started on a recipe I’m really excited about for dinner. I hope it turns out!

Do you eat any of the Bagel Thins/Sandwich Thins? Which are your favorite?


  1. I use them a lot, I like the whole wheat bagel thins with tofutti spread for breakfast/light lunch and sandwich thins instead of hamburger buns.
