Vegan Tzatziki by The Flexitarian

Vegan Tzatziki

This vegan tzatziki is deliciously moreish.  This is a dairy-free dip that you can serve with raw vegetables. It works really well on bread and wraps too. Perfect for lunch, I also like to serve it for snack or dinner as my kids like to munch on crudités.
