Dairy Free Tzatziki Sauce with Jalapeño is a fresh bright dip that pairs perfectly with Mediterranean dishes like braised lamb and sumac chicken wings. Jalapeño tzatziki sauce makes a great paleo & keto tzatziki twist!
We all love a good sauce, amiright? There is something super satisfying about a good dip. And a smooth creamy dip with a kick of jalapeno? Oh drool city. How about a DAIRY free Tzatziki sauce with Jalapeno? My goodness are you arriving to your mouth-gasm? No? Just me? Fine. I like to arrive first anyway.
I have a passion for Middle Eastern food. I would love to be able to travel and tour the Middle East one day. An eating tour. Especially now that I have developed a liking of most olives.
I was NOT a lover of olives, but persistence and a changing palate after eating Keto, paleo, AIP over the past few years has changed my mind. How great would it be to dip olives in this dairy-free tzatziki?
If you don't have any sumac spice, I strongly suggest you pick some up. This AIP friendly spice has a unique flavor that I didn't even know I had been craving. AND then you can treat yo self to other mouth-watering recipes like sumac onions, sumac chicken wings , jeweled cauliflower rice, marinated chicken, and more coming soon (lamb maybe?)!
Today is a Netflix and PJ Day
My original plan was to write a life story about how jalapeno tzatziki has changed my life; but well, lucky for you you are spared from storytime because Netflix just released a new season of The Crown. And my love of oldtime-ey white people is strong, and I need to watch this show, which is funny as I know how it will end. But I still want to watch.
