griekse pita met gyros en tzatziki


Tzatziki is one of the most versatile sauces I've ever tasted. It's awesome with these meatballsor these shrimp saganaki, courgette fries, courgette fritters and of course with the classic Greek pita..


I think the classic mistake is not adding dill. You can use dry or fresh but it has to go in there.

Greek yogurt

I always recommend using either a full fat Greek yogurt of a low fat version with the creaminess of the full fat variety. Some low fat Greek yogurts have a very light, almost mousse like structure. We don't want that here.

Let it sit

The best is to make this the day before so all the flavors can marinate for a while. This is especially beneficial for the garlic, the taste gets richer and less sharp.

    Heb je een bepaald merk Griekse yoghurt? Ik had laatste eentje van de AH en had het idee dat ie te dun was!

      Ik haal altijd Kri Kri Authenic Greek Yoghurt 10%. Deze is heel lekker dik en romig:) de ‘ griekse stijl ‘ yoghurt is vaak te dun inderdaad.
