Tzatziki Feta Dip

The creamy taste of feta pairs perfectly with the tangy dill in this dish. It’s a flavorful combination.

Cucumbers are 96 percent water which makes them a delicious way to stay hydrated.

The Greek yogurt in this dip may be easier to digest for people who are lactose intolerant. This makes the dish a great alternative to traditional cream or milk based dips.
