Can I Make Tzatziki without Cucumber?

Tzatziki with no cucumber? No problem!  While cucumber is a traditional staple in tzatziki sauces, you can still make a delicious and healthy version without it. This recipe is great if you have someone who doesn’t like cucumber but still want to make this creamy yogurt dip…. or, if you’re like me, you go to make a shawarma and don’t have any fresh cucumber on hand.  The kale is a fantastic substitue and gives this dip a nice earthy crunch.
