Tzatziki is a delicious snack made with greek yogurt. We all know how many health benefits there are to eating yogurt, so test this out!


2 cups zero fat greek yogurt
2 large cloves garlic, minced 
2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cucumber chopped finely, no seeds
Salt to taste
Dried dill sprinkled on top

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Ready to serve immediately, but will be more garlic-y the next day! Tzaiziki is great on toast (whole foods quinoa and flax bread below), on a cracker, on carrots, or just as a side salad.
