I never like to rip on others' recipes. To each her own taste!If you want a thick Tzatziki sauce do not use a blender/food processor. Secondly market cucumbers have way too much water. English cucumbers are much better. Some markets have them. They are usually longer and wrapped in plastic.I highly recommend you look up Chef John's Tzatziki Sauce here on Allrecipe. It is absolutely wonderful, thick and tasty!!!

I love tzatziki, especially with falafel! I agree that this doesn't look like a very thick sauce. I like mine thick and chunky so I would probably skip the blender and mash my garlic to a paste and stir it all together.
