Greek Quesadillas - All the best Greek favors come together in this EPIC cheesy quesadilla, topped with an easy homemade Greek yogurt tzatziki sauce!

Butters and I have basically locked ourselves in our house during this LA heat wave, sipping on these, while also trying to figure out the appropriate tzatziki sauce-to-quesadilla ratio.

I’m not going to lie – it took some time to get the perfect set of measurements just right to ensure that each quesadilla has enough sauce to go around.

But sometimes I get carried away with my dipping practices and there’s just not enough for the last few slices.

Or maybe I just solve everyone’s problems here and double it.

Greek Quesadillas

All the best Greek favors come together in this EPIC cheesy quesadilla, topped with an easy homemade Greek yogurt tzatziki sauce!

Ingredients:

  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 (10-ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 cup julienned sun dried tomatoes in olive oil, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill

For the tzatziki sauce

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 English cucumber, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint, optional
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions:

  1. To make the tzatziki sauce, combine Greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, dill, lemon juice, lemon zest and mint in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Drizzle with olive oil. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Top tortilla with spinach, sun dried tomatoes, olives and cheeses, and then top with another tortilla. Repeat with remaining tortillas to make 4 quesadillas.
  4. Place quesadillas onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake until the cheese has melted, about 8-10 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately with tzatziki sauce, garnished with dill, if desired.
