I love tzatsiki. And I've made it many times the traditional way, but it never turns out just right. I've made a few of the popular Pinterest gyro and tzatsiki recipes, but didn't enjoy those either. I was just about to give up on the whole thing when I went to a restaurant in Joplin and ordered brushetta. Imagine my surprise when they also served us a version of tzatsiki, but it was made with cream cheese!
That day I began my mission to make a yummy, non-traditional tzatsiki. Here is the delicious and SIMPLE result!
Cream Cheese Tzatsiki

2 blocks (8oz each) of room temp, reduced fat cream cheese
1 medium cucumber, peeled and seeded
1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped
Chop up your cucumber into small pieces, and chop your dill well. Combine with the cream cheese and add salt to taste. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Serve with pita, or with gyros.
