- How to Prepare a Dairy-Free Tzatziki
To make this a vegan-style appetizer, these snacks should be prepared using a dairy-free tzatziki. If you can't find one in your grocery store, you can easily make your own by mixing the juice of 1 lemon with 1-1/2 cups plain dairy-free yogurt, 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper in medium bowl. Grate 1 cucumber; squeeze cucumber to remove excess liquid. Add cucumber to yogurt mixture along with 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 tsp. chopped fresh dill and 2 tsp. olive oil; mix well. Refrigerate 3 hours before using as directed. Store leftovers in refrigerator up to 1 week before using as desired, such as a topping for salads or as a dip for fresh vegetables.
- Make it Spicy
For added heat and flavor, drizzle topped crackers with Sriracha sauce (hot chili sauce) before serving.
Not a vegetarian but trying to cut back on red meat? You can instead prepare these fun topped crackers using chicken meatballs or turkey meatballs.
