Ingredients

For the Tzatziki:

  • 1 cup shredded cucumber
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the Garlic Spinach:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 4 oz. container baby spinach
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • Dash of sea salt and ground black pepper

To Serve:

  • 1 7 oz. bag plain pita chips
  • 1 10 oz container hummus
  • 1-2 jarred roasted red peppers chopped
  • 10-12 cherry tomatoes quartered
  • 1/2 English cucumber sliced and quartered
  • 1 oz. crumbled feta cheese
  • 8-10 pitted kalamata olives halved
  • Chopped parsley to garnish

Instructions

For the Tzatziki:

  • Add the shredded cucumber to a colander and sprinkle with salt. Toss to coat. Set aside for 5 minutes. Then, gently squeeze the cucumber to remove some of the excess liquid.
  • Transfer cucumber to a small bowl and stir in the garlic, yogurt, pepper, and lemon juice. Stir well to combine.

For the Garlic Spinach:

  • Add olive oil to a non-stick skillet and turn on medium-high heat. Let it heat up for 1 minute then add the spinach. Cook for 1-2 minutes until it starts to wilt, then add the garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook for another 1-2 minutes until spinach is completely wilted. Turn off heat and set aside.

For the Nachos:

  • Spread pita chips onto a large platter or baking pan. (I used a cookie sheet.) Top with spinach, tzatziki, hummus, red peppers, tomatoes, cucumber, feta, olives, and parsley.
  • Serve!

Notes

To make these vegan, leave off the feta and use a plain non-dairy yogurt in the tzatziki!
