First, let's make the filling. Sauté spinach, onions, and garlic in olive oil. Add feta cheese, dill, and lemon juice for a burst of flavor. Mix well and set aside.


Next, it's time to make the phyllo dough. Roll out the dough and brush it with melted butter. Layer it with more dough and butter until you have a stack of 6-8 sheets.


Spread the spinach filling on top of the dough, leaving a border around the edges. Roll the dough into a log and place it in a greased baking dish.


Bake the Spanakopita in a preheated oven at 375°F for 25-30 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and crispy. Your kitchen will be filled with the aroma of herbs and butter.


While the Spanakopita is baking, let's make the Tzatziki sauce. Grate cucumbers and mix them with Greek yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, and dill. Season with salt and pepper.


Once the Spanakopita is done, let it cool for a few minutes before slicing it into portions. Serve it with a dollop of Tzatziki sauce on top for a refreshing contrast of flavors.


Take a bite of the flaky crust and creamy filling, combined with the tangy and cool Tzatziki sauce. It's a perfect balance of textures and tastes that will leave you wanting more.


This dish is not only delicious but also packed with nutrients. Spinach is rich in iron and vitamins, while Greek yogurt is a great source of protein. Indulge guilt-free!
