    A very good recipe as is. Not as thick as I am used to though. To make it a 5-star recipe, I added finely chopped cucumbers, and I left out the olive oil and used greek yogurt because it is thicker. If you can't find greek yogurt (or a real yogurt strainer), you can put two coffee filters into a colander. Put the colander over a bowl and strain the yogurt for about an hour or so on the countertop.  -  08 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    To make this a true tzatziki sauce, I did add one very large deseeded cucumber. I also used greek yogurt. VERY good. I seriously ate myself sick on this with a bag of sea salt pita chips. NOTE: If you can stand it, the longer this sauce sits.......the better it gets.  -  12 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    so ... i'd give it a "5" based on the way i made it, but no cucumbers in the recipe?!?! it definitely needs them. i added about 1 cup of finely chopped cucumbers to the recipe and it was perfect and delicious! went great with the gyros burgers also on this site. also, we used Dannon's plain fat-free yogurt and had NO problems with it being too "runny" like others complained about. it was thick, rich and great. but remember to add those cucumbers!  -  12 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
