How to Store Tzatziki Dip

You can safely and easily store this delicious dip in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. Honestly, I wouldn’t store it any longer than that.

Is Tzatziki Healthier Than Hummus?

If you’re following a strict keto diet, tzatziki is definitely healthier than hummus. While hummus is healthy, it’s not keto-friendly because of the chickpeas. Of course, you can make hummus without chickpeas and make it just as healthy as tzatziki.

You can check out the recipe below if you want a keto version of hummus.
