Corn tortillas could be used in this recipe to make it gluten-free.
You can brush the tortillas with melted butter and then fry if you are not vegan.
- Squeeze the grated cucumber to remove the water. Making tzatziki sauce creamy requires this step – if you skip it, your sauce will separate due to the water from the cucumbers. The cucumber can be squeezed directly over the sink, or lightly pressed between kitchen towels.
