It’s the reason why one of my most often heard of requests is for more meals that are easy to make, don’t take a whole lot of time or a laundry list of ingredients, but still have that from-scratch, seasonal-eats quality.

Angela used to purchase boxes of dips or sauces a couple of years ago but the habit is nowhere to be found. She made her own dips and sauces – to us, it is so much easier cheaper, fresher than those we purchase outside.
While it does take us out of the 5-ingredient category, the tzatziki sauce is another simple recipe to prepare. It’s a simple cucumber sauce made with fresh dill, red wine vinegar, Greek yoghurt, and garlic. The amount of garlic in this recipe is our family’s favourite, but vary the amount of garlic to your liking.
Doesn’t it look simple? Now, are you excited to recreate it at home with the easy-find ingredients! If you make our Grilled Chicken Salad, don’t forget to tag us on Instagram as @leplaincanvas and use the #byplaincanvas hashtag. We love seeing your takes on our recipes!
