Homemade Flatbread with Tzatziki

Homemade Flatbread with Tzatziki

Tzatziki is one of the greatest gifts the Greeks have shared with the world. It is a Greek yogurt based sauce loaded with simple ingredients, yet it has such a sensational and complex flavor. I love it! and I´m not ashamed to say I eat it by the boat loads! It´s super healthy and it makes a great dip for any party. I decided to create a simple and easy recipe that would include my version of tzatziki, along with some homemade flatbread. This combination of flavors is just about the greatest appetizer you can imagine, and when you serve it up to your guest, they will be blown away that you made everything from scratch! The best part……you don´t need any special skills or prior cooking experience, I have created a fool-proof recipe that anyone can follow. Your guest will think you slaved for hours to make this dish and think of you as the next master chef! Watch the video below on how to make this homemade flatbread with tzatziki, and enjoy the beautiful flavors of the Mediterranean. Salud!
