Cool and refreshing, this salad is a perfect accompaniment to lamb or rice - or both! You may use mint in place of dill if you wish, be creative.

I thought it was too bland but my mom seemed to like it (maybe because its healthy?) It may be that I didn't let it sit over night to infuse the flavors. I might try it again and do that but I'll probably just look for another recipe. Read More

Delicious, cool and easy to make. I added more cucumbers and less yogurt but kept the seasonings the same and the dish was a hit. Read More

This was perfect with our kababs and we made gyros with this. I shredded the cucumber with the small side of the cheese grater. I used greek yogurt kosher salt and just a sprinkle or two of coarse ground black pepper. My son even said this is the best tzaiziki sauce so don't lose this recipe! (I can't spell it you know the stuff I mean) I added about a half tsp of dried mint too since it was in the meat marinade. Thanks we loved this! Read More

Beautiful! I used less yogurt like many reviews said, but I have to say that I enjoyed it right away (couldn't wait, it looked sooooo good) more than later. But it was still darn good a couple days later over some fresh greens. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Read More

This recipe is refreshing. It used a lot of yogurt than I liked. So I just used 6 ounces of yogurt instead of 32 ounces. I also used 3 cucumbers instead of one just because I love eating them. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This was okay. I think it would taste better with mint instead of dill. Read More

Very good with the caveat that I did not use anywhere near this much yogurt primarily because we would never use that much of the dressing. I used about 10 ounces of it and halved both the garlic and dill keeping the cucumber the same. Added kosher salt & ground pepper to my taste. Served it with a lentils & rice dish and it was wonderful. Perfect tang. Read More
