Mild tzatziki

    15 min

    This is a mild tzatziki recipe that doesn't call for the usual garlic. It is delicious with Greek dishes, as well as a dip for crisps or crudites. For great results, use a thick Greek yoghurt and squeeze as much liquid as possible from the cucumbers before adding to the yoghurt.

    It's good...but where I come from, we just call it "Tzetziki sauce," and it's a staple of greek cuisine. But "Duke"...whatever...this is a decent recipe that goes great on warm folded flatbread with plenty of fresh romaine or endives and some lamb strips or cubed peppered chicken. Much too subtle for US children, weaned on hot dogs and processed cheese, but anybody who appreciates a subtle treat will take "Duke" over ranch dressing any day of the week.  -  06 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent! I love the subtle flavor in this sauce. I served it with crudites and toasted pita to guests. It was a big hit. Also makes a nice side to a spicy curry.  -  30 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My 'meat and potatoes' boyfriend actually loves this. I cut the cukes into rounds and serve it as a side dish to middle eastern chicken kabobs and hummus with veggies.  -  03 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
