Greek Tzatziki Egg Salad

Tzatziki sauce has become of my favorite condiments!  I am always trying to find new things to make with it! The tzatziki sauce is a zippy Greek condiment usually served with gyros made from Yogurt, cucumber, dill, garlic, and lemon juice.   You can purchase Tzatziki sauce, but I think homemade is best.   Mixing Tzatziki sauce with hard-boiled eggs creates a delicious Greek-inspired meal that comes together quickly for lunch or dinner.  I recommend adding fresh veggies and olives for the best flavor.  Tzatziki egg salad tastes great on pita bread, naan, as a lettuce wrap, over a salad, or in a grain bowl.  

This Tzatziki egg salad turned out to be a delicious lunch!  It has protein-filled hard-boiled eggs, zippy tzatziki sauce,  fresh crunchy vegetables, warm, soft naan, and flavor-packed kalamata olives.  You can easily make this egg salad at the beginning of the week and eat it for lunch all week. Hard-boiled eggs stay fresh in the fridge for up to five days after you boil them.

I turned my tzatziki egg salad into a sandwich that tastes like a gyro.   This egg salad would also taste great on toast, as a lettuce wrap, on crackers, or over a salad.   This is a great way to switch up your lunch game and is also a great way to enjoy eggs for dinner!

This recipe is easy.   All you need is:

8 hard-boiled eggs

1 cup of tzatziki sauce

It is also nice to have around the following fixings!

flatbread or lettuce

tomatoes

cucumbers

kalamata olives.

The Ingredients you need for Tzatziki sauce:

Greek Yogurt

lemon juice

dried dill

If you choose to buy tzatziki sauce instead of making it.  I would look out for it at
