Yogurt Dip with Roasted Red Peppers

Yogurt Dip

Yogurt DipWe love yogurt dips and one of all our time favorites is my husband’s tzatziki recipe {aka Turkish cacik recipe}.

The secret to any dip is to start with a good Greek yogurt and we find ourselves using Zoi over and over again. As of yet, we have yet to find one that we enjoy cooking with more than it. If you can’t find a good one, buy the one you have access to and strain it either with cheese cloth or a very fine kitchen strainer. The reduction of the liquid will make a huge difference in your dip once you start adding ingredients to it.

For this recipe you can use jarred red peppers if you want or do our preferred way, roasted! Click here to read Bob’s no fail method How to Roast Red Peppers – it’s much easier than the open flame version of roasting peppers.

With the tzatziki and the yogurt dip with roasted red peppers, we like to eat Bob’s specially made baked pita bread. While eating pita bread unbaked is incredibly tasty, we love his version even more. Once I wrangle him to make some more I will photograph and share his easy recipe for great tasting toasted pita squares {or triangles}.
