Tzatziki Dip

I could drink this dip. But why have it by itself when you could have it on a homemade sweet potato chip? Or a Harvest Snap pea crisp?

I suggest making this dip as an appetizer when you’re having people over. It only takes marginally more effort than purchasing store bought ubiquitous hummus, and it’s just as healthy. It’s better when made a few hours in advance so the flavors really sink in. Leftover dip would be fantastic in sandwiches or wraps.
