Tzatziki Origins

The word Tzatziki originates from the Persian zhazh, that means herb mixture.

It goes back to the Ottoman Empire stemming from tarator that was the name of a dish made of ground walnuts and vinegar.

The word itself comes from the Turkish word cacık which in turn is thought to have originated from the Armenian word cacıg.
