So how about a creamy, chunky, garlicky greek Tzatziki dip with feta cheese? ‘Yes yes yes please’ I shouted when M suggested we give this a go. I love dips especially garlic dips like Tzatziki so I really don’t need convincing, in fact, anything Tzatziki is my kind of thinking. Not too long ago we did experiment with turmeric Tzatziki and the results were pretty amazing. This one is with feta cheese (yuuuuum). It does not get more Greek than that.

Greek tzatziki dip with feta cheese

Feta cheese is (normally) made of goat or sheep milk (or a combination) and it’s a cheese from Greece. It is a crumbly salty aged cheese, commonly produced in blocks, and has a slightly grainy texture. The best thing about this cheese that it is actually not bad for you. In fact, it has anti-cancer properties and promotes bone health and boost the immune system. Here is why.

Feta is a great source of calcium.

Research suggests that calcium combined with vitamin D can help protect our bodies against cancer. Moreover, the feta cheese is rich in the protein compound alpha-lactalbumin. Research suggests, when this protein binds to calcium and zinc, it also develops anti-bacterial and anti-tumour properties.

This is a guilt-free Greek tzatziki dip that is so simple and quick to make. It took us less than 5 minutes to combine all of the ingredients. It goes perfectly with bread, on salad leaves, roast veggies, portobello mushroom steaks.. the list goes on…
