Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

Is burying a meal deep under a sauce acceptable table manner or are we just overly emotional? Can Tzatziki sauce save our soul when the day comes?

If flavors are the soul of the food then sauces are the teenage years. As much as the sometimes overwhelming emotions can make or break a teenage life, randomly splashed around sauces can do the same with any dish.

Unfortunately for teens, whose prefrontal cortex hasn’t developed yet, don’t have the ability to think rationally. This little fact may very well explain the outrageous amount of sauces being poured over their food.

The prefrontal cortex of their brain where all the rationalizing goes is simply not there. It’s pretty startling that kids who are smarter than adults do it with part of their brain actually missing. Yet the true understanding of the long-term consequences of their actions is not there until they are 25 or even 30 years old.

Does tzatziki have a brand?

No wonder, marketing campaigns are explicitly target the 18 -35 years old to build brand loyalty for life. What we bond with during these years, we carry them through our life, given the company survives that long.

It’s no coincidence that companies spend egregious amount of money buying up bankrupt older brands, instead of just letting the old ones die in peace. The image, that has been built during a lifetime of a company, is worth as much as the actual product it creates.

Otherwise no one would pay double, triple or even more for getting from A to B in a car that provides the same experience. The one who said the love can’t be bought for money, never sat in a car worth more than a family home.

How much is tzatziki worth?

Of course, cars aren’t the only ones bought because of their front badge, otherwise no restaurant would care for silly stars in a tire company’s road guide. Nor cheese producers would be so keen to protect the region’s name where their cheese is from.

To be honest, it’s completely understandable that people whose whole life was spent making a product great, don’t want it to see ending up like monkey bread, horchata or the hot dog.

What’s beyond tzatziki?

It’s not like copying something is eternally bad. However, if somebody produces an end product that is inferior to the original but still want to bash in the glory of the copied one, now that’s a sin.

Yet, we sinners are all alive, hoping that when the day of judgment comes, no one will remember those Bolognese sauces made with cream, pizzas made of cauliflower or the amount of sauces poured over various delicacies.

For many of our sins, there is no redemption but with a bit of luck, we may find some allies like Zeus who would definitely have some helpful words for our case. As long, of course, as the sauce we bathed our innocent spirit was tzatziki.

What exactly tzatziki is?

As it’s name implies, Tzatziki is a Greek sauce but similar sauces exist all over from the Balkans to the Middle East with various names. Tzatziki sauce main ingredients are Greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, salt and olive oil. A bit of dill can be added with a squeeze of lemon juice, but dill can be substituted with mint or parsley for the more adventures.

Overall, tzatziki is an excellent sauce for the hot summer months, but it can serve as a lovely reminder of summer during the cold winter days.Tzatziki Sauce Recipe - SunCakeMom
