Can I Make Tzatziki without Dill?

Tzatziki with no dill? No problem!  While dill is a traditional ingredient 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 dill 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 dill on hand, so you improvise.  The fresh mint is a fantastic substitute and gives this dip a nice earthy flavor.

A Creamy No Dill Tzatziki Recipe That’s Perfect for Summer
