Paleo Tzatziki Sauce

Paleo Tzatziki Sauce

This delicious paleo tzatziki sauce made fresh is one of those special condiments that you can use on top of meats, vegetables and salads such as Paleo Chicken Strips in a Salad. It’s also a great primal dip served  with raw veggies at parties. There are still many paleos who eat dairy (learn about the different types of paleo diets on my The Paleo Diet page), and this recipe has dairy. However, it can be made with drained coconut cream instead, but do understand that the taste will not be exactly the same as the original recipe, and you may need to add additional spices to taste.
