Mealthy tip:

If being gluten-free is your choice, serve with gluten-free bread. This even tastes great over a bed of quinoa!

I've made a million different Tzatziki sauce recipes, but this one gets a solid A. It was the perfect addition to these yummy salmon sandwiches. I used French bread but next time may go with a lighter loaf. All in all I loved this dish!
