Something about warm weather makes me crave Greek food. It is probably all of those fresh and crunchy veggies! This Greek Tzatziki Quesadilla is inspired by a classic Greek Salad. I have been lucky enough to visit Athens and the Greek salads there are simply large chunks of tomato and cucumber with some olives, feta, oil, and herbs mixed in. So simple and so incredibly tasty all at the same time!

This quesadilla can be a little salty between the cheeses and the brine of the olives. But I found that serving with tzatziki completely balances it out! And I absolutely love the tzatziki inside of the quesadilla itself for some extra flavor!
My hubby is a lover of anything cheese related. So it was not difficult to convince him that I needed to experiment with a Greek Tzatziki Quesadilla and have him test them out. Twist. His. Arm. Feta cheese brings the classic tang to the quesadilla, and the monterey jack (or mozzarella) provides a mild cheese flavor with a lot of gooey stretch.
Now, I am not a yogurt fan. Like, at all. No bueno. But I DO love tzatziki. The flavors of dill and cucumber make me forget that I am eating yogurt. It is oh-so-good! And since it is pretty healthy, you don’t have to feel guilty about completely slathering it onto that quesadilla. Which I may or may not do. 🙂
This Greek Tzatziki Quesadilla would also be fantastic with some chicken for the meat lovers. It is a perfect way to sneak in some veggies for the kids and general vegetable-avoiders. And if you peel the cucumber before dicing, there is no obvious green chunks to be found! Muahaha!
