When it comes to adding a burst of flavor to your favorite dishes, look no further than Keto Tzatziki Sauce. This creamy Greek-inspired sauce is the perfect accompaniment to a veggie platter or a gyro bowl, offering a low carb twist on the classic tzatziki sauce.
A Low Carb Twist on a Favorite
Keto Tzatziki Sauce takes the simplicity of the original recipe and modifies it to fit a low carb and keto lifestyle. By substituting sour cream for Greek yogurt, this sauce becomes a creamy, garlic-y, dill-infused delight with only 3 net carbs in 1/4 cup.
Unveiling the Ingredients
Let’s take a closer look at what goes into this delectable Keto Tzatziki Sauce:
Sour Cream – Instead of Greek yogurt, sour cream is used as a base in this low carb version. It not only reduces the carb content but also adds a touch of extra fat. The tang from the lemon juice and vinegar helps to seamlessly blend the flavors.
Cucumber – Opt for English cucumbers if possible, as they are easier to work with. Regular cucumbers can be used, but their skin is tougher and slightly bitter, requiring peeling. English cucumbers have soft skin and no seeds, making them perfect for grating without the need to peel.
Garlic, Lemon Juice, Red Wine Vinegar, Fresh Dill, and Salt – These ingredients combine to create the signature flavors of a traditional tzatziki sauce, with the added touch of fresh dill giving this Keto Tzatziki Sauce a delightful twist.
Simple Steps to Flavorful Perfection
Making Keto Tzatziki Sauce is a breeze. Just follow these steps:
Begin by grating the cucumber and remove excess moisture by wrapping it in a towel and squeezing out the water.
In a large bowl, combine the dried cucumber with the remaining ingredients, stirring until well combined.
That’s it! You now have a delicious low carb sauce ready to elevate your meals.
Versatile and Creative Serving Ideas
Keto Tzatziki Sauce offers endless possibilities for culinary enjoyment:
Dip your favorite veggies, such as cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots, cauliflower, or broccoli, into this flavorful sauce for a wholesome snack.
Add a dollop of Keto Tzatziki Sauce to your Greek Chicken Roll-ups, Greek Sliders, or Keto Chicken Gyro Bowl to take them to the next level.
