This creamy, cool and refreshing tzatziki sauce is great on everything – meats, vegetables, fish, etc. With my Keto Tzatziki Sauce Recipe you can have all the flavors you crave without the extra carbs!
While my Keto Tzatziki Sauce is simply amazing, I didn’t set out intending to create a low-carb recipe adaptation…. So, here’s the thing – I actually stink at keeping anything beyond the basics on hand. For me plain yogurt, let alone greek yogurt, isn’t something that I regularly have in the fridge…
And then, when I REALLY need ingredients last minute, it never fails that it’s impossible to find the healthiest options locally. In this case finding Organic, Grass-fed, Whole Milk Yogurt (let alone pre-strained greek) isn’t available in a moments notice.
No. I never eat low fat or fat free dairy so please don’t even ask about it. Full Fat or Don’t Bother, for reals, follow my lead folks.
Don’t get me wrong, our local food scene has evolved and I’m extremely proud of how far we’ve come BUT there’s a certain degree of planning required.
But I do ALWAYS have sour cream in our fridge – I purchase it by the case so that I’m never caught without it!
And why the heck wouldn’t sour cream work for Tzatziki Sauce!?!
Am I right? or Am I RIGHT??
I mean come-on.. Why didn’t you think of this already?? Using Sour Cream will make the thickest, creamiest Tzatziki Sauce and you’ll never go back to using greek yogurt again, even if you ditch the keto diet in the future!
Follow my lead and make this GIANT 2 cup batch because you’ll want to put my Keto Tzatziki Sauce on EVERYTHING.
To start with serve it up with my Gyro Lamb Meatballs, a generous side of my 5-mintue Pressure Cooker Rice Pilaf with Pine Nuts and Parsley and don’t forget a Greek Salad with piles of Kalamta olives too!!
- Finely grate the cucumber (leave skin on) and toss with a few pinches of sea salt. Let sit for 5 minutes. Strain, pressing out as much liquid as possible.
- Mix shredded (strained) cucumber with remaining ingredients, seasoning with sea salt and pepper to taste.
- Refrigerate for 30+ minutes before serving to allow flavors to blend. Will keep for up to 5 days.
