I normally add tzatziki sauce when I eat roast left-overs. I cut the roast in slices (without warming it), and I add some tzatziki sauce.

Are there different uses for tzatziki sauce? (I am sure there are.)


You can use it on its own as a dip with pita bread, use it as a spread on sandwiches, or as an accompaniment to fish and meat as you're already doing.

    Yes it would, I find that you can use tzatiki any place you would use sour cream as well. – sarge_smith Jul 26 '10 at 22:36

    Mix your tzatziki with some chunked up tomatoes, onions, bell peppers,and cucumbers and you'll have a excellent salad! – Darin Sehnert Jul 27 '10 at 1:01

It's great added to flatbread wraps made with Greek or Turkish style kebabs.


I don't know about the hardcore traditional rules, but for me, I can use it on absolutely everything, and when I am in Greece I do:

  • In addition to salad with bread
  • Alone with bread
  • As a dip with meat and bread
  • As a spread on bread
  • Alone, as a side / antipasti for drinks
  • In Kebab
  • Together with Mousaka
  • With fried / baked zucchini
  • Watered down as a cold summer soup (Bulgarian Style)
  • With crackers
  • ...
