Traditionally made with cucumbers, Tzatziki is the perfect accompaniment to many dishes.  Putting a new spin on an old classic, this version is made with zucchini instead of cucumbers; the result, a delicious dish which holds up well!

I served this sauce along with  Baharat Lamb Lettuce Cups, prepared at Farm Day with Thames Farm  pasture raised lamb.
