If you like tzatziki as much as we do, you will really like this quick and easy salad.
This Tzatziki Salad is a great side dish for four, or you can serve it up as an entrée for two and serve it with grilled chicken and some pita bread. We have to say though, no matter how you make it this salad is made for delicious summertime meals.
WOT we love about this salad: The addition of adding super fresh, seasonal tomatoes really made this salad over the top delicious. This recipe will also keep in your refrigerator for up to two days… that is if there are any leftovers.
