I never serve Greek food without Tzatziki, it goes so well with everything, from the pita bread right to the chicken and potatoes.
Tzatziki can be made a few hours ahead of time. This allows the flavors to blend together. Make Tzatziki with thick, Greek yogurt, because the better the yogurt the better the Tzatziki will be. Try to find one that is at least 8 to 10% M.F.(milk fat).
