Courgette Patties with Tzaziki Dip

Hello everyone, The other day I was chatting with a really sweet new blogger friend, in regards to recipes with Courgettes/Zucchinis.  She mentioned that her garden is filled with Courgettes, and besides soups she really didn’t know what else to do with them. So, because I know she is a very busy bee, I am posting another recipe that I think she will enjoy, as I hope you will too. 🙂

This appetizer goes great with the famous Tzaziki Dip, which I think or I am sure most know of, so to accompany this absolutely delicious Courgette dish, I made the traditional Tzatziki dip. This dip recipe varies from region to region in Greece, others add dill, other add capers, personally the taste is the same as long as there is cucumber, olive oil, and garlic it’s Tzaziki.



The drinks that usually accompany these types of appetizers is Ouzo or Tsipouro, but again it could be beer, (I don’t drink Ouzo or Tsipouro…I am more of a wine person 🙂 ) it all comes down to what you enjoy drinking. 🙂 

I hope you enjoy both recipes.  🙂

Use this little gadget if you have one for the garlic.  If you don’t I used a multi-blender until I got one and it worked out just fine for me.
