Ingredients

For the Toasted Pitas

  • 3 rounds of pita bread plain or any flavor desired
  • olive oil
  • fine ground sea salt

For the Tzatziki Sauce

  • cups nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup light sour cream
  • 1 cup peeled shredded English cucumber (squeeze to remove excess liquid)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon dill
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 lemon juiced

Instructions

For slightly crisp but still pliable pitas:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly brush both sides of pita rounds with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt. Cut each round in quarters. Place on an ungreased, rimmed baking sheet and bake for 6 minutes. Remove from oven. Serve while still slightly warm.

For crisp pitas:

  • Follow as above but after baking for 6 minutes, flip pita triangles over and bake for an additional 3 or 4 minutes. Pitas will be become even crispier as they cool. When completely cool, store in an airtight container or zippered plastic storage bag.
  • Serve with tzatziki sauce, hummus, or a variety of other dips and spreads.

Tzatziki Sauce

  • Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir well to combine. Chill for at least one hour or more before serving to allow flavors to blend.
  • Serve with warm toasted pitas or as a condiment along side any Mediterranean style meal.
