The sauce was too thin and the beef is bland. Great recipe for people who don't like spices. Read More

This was very good. The next time I will be using half the amounts for the tzatziki, I had enough for 10 people. :-) Read More

This was great. I made a few changes. I used a naan like break so it was fluffier then the pita bread. I also based on other reviews hand chopped the cucumber vs blending it to avoid the tzatziki from having too much liquid. Read More

My hubby and I loved this! I think I put too much lemon juice in the tzatziki for my hubby's taste so he used some Trader Joe's goddess dressing instead. I added Salt and Pepper to the meat. Also I added some sesame seeds and a dab of prepared horseradish on my gyro. For the kids sake I put the onions cucumbers and tomatoes as a salad on the side with oil & vinegar. Read More

Made it the fist time as written yep it was way to thin. It took a little thought but to thicken it: 1) shred the cucumber 2) wrap in paper towels and squeeze the moisture out 3) MIX BY HAND DON'T USE THE BLENDER. Now you have a great tzatziki;) Read More

People who are having trouble with it being watery. Try running the cucumbers through a food processor blender or grate really fine on a cheese grader first then put on a terry cloth or a lot of paper towles and ring out the extra mosture form the cucumbers. This will help remove the extra liquid and make the tzatziki thicker. Read More
