Summery Tzatziki Salad

I know I've been kinda MIA around here lately, but we've been stung with the 'house hunting bug' and I've been pre-occupied with that. You know things can get hectic with that sorta thing...Meanwhile, I've been making a lot of quick salads like this one. I call it a summer salad because the veggies in it remind me of summer so much. It's dressed with tzatziki sauce, a light tart creamy yogurt which is yummy dipped in veggies. So I thought, why not use it as a salad dressing? Its cool, creamy, yet still light and summery. AND it only has 3-4 ingredients! What's your favorite summer salad?

Summery Tzatziki Salad
2 Roma Tomatoes
1 Cucumber
1/4 cup tzatziki
1 sprig fresh dill

1 Chop up tomatoes and cucumbers and throw in a bowl.
2 Combine tzatziki sauce with chopped dill and fold into the vegetable mixture.
3 Season with salt 'n' peppa.

I love tzatziki, but never though to make a salad like this with it. I bet it would be great on potato salad too!

good luck with the house hunting!

What a refreshing and delicious summer salad! My favorite salad has sweet and savory flavors - a bit of whatever fruit I have - blue or feta cheese - nuts - and whatever veggies I have in the fridge!

i can get behind any method for putting tzatziki into my mouth, and the lightness and freshness of this dish is perfect.

We're in the middle of house-hunting too! It is so stressful!

On another note, I love this simple salad!

Hope you find your dream home soon. Funnily we were house hunting too but has put the project on hold for now as prices are skyrocketing to a point that both buyers and sellers are going mad.
