I was talking with my friend Erika recently about our spanikopita recipe. So of course, talking about it made me want it. And then I decided we would have a Greek feast and I would make Tzatziki Sauce.

I’ve never made it before but I’ve eaten it more times than I can count, so I knew what it should taste like. That definitely helped.

And this was a lot easier than I had anticipated too, which was good. Plus it gave me an excuse to use the blender from our bridal shower. Any excuse to use that blender makes me happy since it was not cheap.
