One of my favourite things about this dinner is not that it’s light and healthy, but that my kids can make it entirely on their own! Yes, even the homemade tzatziki!

Whether it’s the middle of a heatwave and you’re looking for a recipe that doesn’t involve any cooking, or it’s the middle of a deep freeze and you’re longing for a taste of summer, this recipe will satisfy all tastebuds. It’s super simple to make it into a vegan recipe, low-carb, keto, Whole30, or anything your heart desires with just a few easy substitutions. No matter which way you choose to top it, the homemade tzatziki is the key to this gorgeous Mediterranean flavour.
