StephD1982 5y agoIt's a nice recipe,but in an authentic Greek recipe there is neither dill nor mint!!! Taste better when left out,make it the night before!!!
sgrishka 6y agoWonderful! We made this classic Greek condiment to serve as an authentic accent to Lamb Souvlaki. It was easy to prepare and had great taste. The secret to great Tzatziki lies in the yogurt. I use a really good, high-fat, sheep's milk, Greek yogurt. I strongly encourage using Greek Yogurt! It's naturally thick, creamy and packed with tangy flavor. The only change I made was to squeeze out the remaining water from the peeled, shredded and drained cucumbers. Thoroughly dewatering the cucumbers is every important to a thick tzatziki.
