Deviled eggs are a staple in our family for all holidays, events, and gatherings. They are a simple and easy appetizer to prepare and are always a hit! I try to shake things up with new flavors like with these Tzatziki Deviled Eggs!
These Tzatziki Deviled Eggs use the traditional flavors of a tzatziki sauce in the yolk mixture. I am NOT a fan of yogurt, but tzatziki is one of my favorite things! I was in Greece and found this amazing sauce everywhere I went. So I tried it, because I believe in trying new and different foods when you travel, and I fell in LOVE. Tzatziki does not taste like yogurt at all, thanks to all of the great flavors mixed in. Fresh cucumber, dill, lemon, and garlic make tzatziki shine.

Cooking and peeling hard boiled eggs can be….challenging. You can see a couple of these eggs were “difficult.” I do love to purchase the pre-boiled, pre-peeled eggs that you can find at your grocery store to make assembly even faster and the eggs a perfect shape. They won’t have the bumps and divots that you see here! 😀
I topped off these eggs with Kalamata olive pieces, keeping with the Greek salad theme. You can also use tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, or nothing at all! The yogurt makes these Tzatziki Deviled Eggs extra smooth and creamy. Bright and fresh flavors make them perfect for spring and Easter, or as a lighter and fresher appetizer option. Love tzatziki?

Love these devilled eggs. Perfect for Easter.
Yogurt instead of mayo, I love that! I can never get enough of devilled eggs.
I do love tzatziki, so these are going to be favorites for me, I predict. Also, you cracked me up with your “difficult” eggs. So true that some just don’t want to be perfect!
Haha thanks, Dorothy! It gives them character 😀
What a great way to change up devilled eggs, and using the olive to garnish like that makes them look really cool!
I’m not a big fan of deviled eggs, but I love tzatziki. This is a recipe I would love. Can’t wait to try it!
