Paleo Avocado Tzatziki Sauce

Low CarbVegetarianPaleoGluten Free

When I was a kid my mom use to make Gyros all the time! I LOVE Gryos! The warm pita, spicy lamb, and sweet tomatoes. Yum!!!But my favorite part was and still is the Tzatziki sauce. I use to load that stuff in the pita… maybe even more Tzatziki sauce than lamb. So when I saw this recipe for Avocado Tzatziki sauce I was sold!

Normally in Tzatziki sauce you would use Greek Yogurt to make it creamy. But this one uses avocado, and who doesn’t love avocado! It is a great twist on the typical Tzatziki and it is Paleo. This sauce would be perfect on a lamb burger or pita sandwich. I actually used it as a dressing for a Greek Chicken Salad, recipe to come later this week! 🙂

Hope you enjoy!

To get started, grate 1/4 cup of cucumber and 1 small garlic clove. {make sure it is small or it will overpower the sauce}cucumber

Add cucumber and garlic to small food processor. Next add 1 whole ripe avocado.

    1. Aww!! Thanks Kim! You’ll have to let me know how it comes out. Thanks for the “pin love” too. I use the Ziplist plugin for my recipe form. It is awesome, you can actually use it to create your own virtual recipe book too. If you want more info on it let me know, thanks for stopping by. I was so excited to see “kim @ too much time” on my comment feed. 🙂

    1. I don’t either.. I make a few recipes here and there but I’m definitely not hard core Paleo. I like Chocolate too much! I think you could add avocado to anything and it will come out tasting awesome, but i’m also an avocado lover. 🙂 Hope you enjoy Sherri!

  1. What a healthy, beautiful sauce! I can’t wait to try it. I love the cucumber in there–I would never have thought of adding that with the avocado. Yummy!

    I just stumbled upon your avocado dressing recipe because I was looking for a sauce to go with my bowl of zucchini that I grated into long spaghetti-like strips. I didn’t have a cucumber, so I used a zucchini (I happen to have a lot of zucchinis at the moment). YUM!!!!! I whipped that sauce up in my food processor and LOVED it!!! Thanks! I’m going to follow you on Facebook. Thanks!!!
