Coconut Yogurt Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki is traditionally paired with gyros and other Mediterranean dishes. Cucumber, yogurt, and garlic are the staple ingredients, and we fortify it with pungency and minerals from freshly chopped mint, oregano, dill, and a little lemon zest. We love to make ours with plain, vegan coconut yogurt made by our friends over at Coconut Culture. Serve this tangy sauce atop a plate of roasted vegetables, or alongside a platter of chicken skewers.
