French Fridays with Dorie – Tzatziki

Tzatziki by My Baking Heart #weightwatchers

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a ‘French Fridays’ recipe. In the past few months, C changed jobs, we bought a house and we’ve been marrying off our friends left and right! Each week I meant to post, but there was never enough time and frankly, I didn’t want a bunch of leftovers to go to waste.

I couldn’t be happier with this week’s recipe, though. I’ve mentioned before that I dated a Greek guy while I was at TCU. And while he was no where near Greek God material, his mother was absolutely brilliant in the kitchen. This Tzatziki recipe from Dorie brought back a flood of memories from that time… I seriously wanted to sit on the couch with the mixing bowl and a big ol’ spoon for the rest of the night. It’s that good!

And to keep in line with ‘Foodies Shedding Booties’, I used a non-fat variety of Greek yogurt. Still tangy and rich, but without all the fat! It’s perfect as a sauce over chicken, topped on crudités or just by itself.

Yum! This reminds me of a few summers ago, I was out in California visiting one of my best friends. Her then fiance (now husband) made turkey burgers with tzatziki. They were pretty darn tasty!

Welcome back and congrats on getting your new home! I took a lengthy break from FFwD myself too and just started taking part again regularly. Isn’t it awesome how a dish, a taste memory, can bring back thoughts about the past?

Man, I just brushed my teeth, but that looks like a snack platter worth digging into RIGHT NOW!! 🙂 Looks great! 🙂

PS I’m in the same boat as you btw,… meaning to post with the best of intentions and time just keeps getting away from me every day!:(

I actually did sit down with the remaining bowl and a spoon and polish this off. Finally got to it for our make up week. So many many more to do…
