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. Read More

This was just too bland for our taste. I cut the recipe in half and still had a ton left. Think I will stick with my mixture of yogurt cucumber and dry Zesty Italian dressing mix. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

If you combine the D from Dill and "Cuke" from Cucumber and you get "Duke." Maybe that's where the name came from? Read More

I made this dip for a family gathering. I grated the cumcumber then blotted the pieces with a paper towel to get rid of excess moisture. This prevented the yogurt from becoming runny. Everyone enjoyed it including the 5-year-old. Thanks Jolie - a pleasant healthy change from bottled Ranch Dressing. Read More

I love this dip. I used non-fat yogurt and made it for a party to serve with raw veggies and it was perfect. After the party I tossed the left over veggies into the dip for lunch. I'll make it again -- light and tastey. Read More

VERY GOOD! I've made this recipe twice and plan to make it a staple whenever we have excess cucumbers from our garden. I cut the recipe in half and it still yielded 2-3 cups of dip. I added twice the amount of dill and 5 dashes of hot sauce (still a very cool refreshing dip- it just added more flavor). Do not use a blender or food processor or the constency will be too soupy. Chop and mix by hand and the dip will be perfect for veggies chips or spreading. My favorite way to eat Duke is rolled up inside flour tortillas! YUM! Read More

This is very good. However instead of using just regular plain Yogurt use Greek Style plain Yogurt it is much creamier and thicker than regular American Plain Yogurt. Read More

A great dip to use up cukes dill and chives from the garden. I added some garlic salt and freshly cracked pepper. This was good served with rye chips. I also think radishes would be good too. Taste the skin of your cukes before you chop them up and add them to the dip. My 1st one was bitter so I had to throw out the entire batch and start over with a younger cuke with sweeter skin. If I would have tested it I could have just peeled the cuke and saved the first batch. Just a heads up! I also seeded it Read More
