    it was excellent.... exactly what i remember from overseas. this recipe makes far too much, so i suggest cutting it in half. also, i prefer sour cream to the yogurt.

    Turned out great! The serving size was huge though so I’d recommend cutting this recipe in half unless you are serving a large party.

    Totally easy to do! I used 1 cucumber and 3 cups of Greek yogurt. It tasted amazing recently done and after two hours on the fridge it tasted even better. The cucumber was easy to work with, next time will use mint to see how it turns out

    Yum! I've never had a bad tzatziki and this was no exception. Brilliant idea to take out the cucumber "cores" - why have I never thought of that? I grated mine but otherwise sid everything the same. I know it'll taste even better tomorrow.

    Great sauce. Tastes as good as my favorite tzatziki on a gyro. I used it for a vegetable dip at a party and it was a hit. Easy to make, super healthy!

    truly delicious! I made half the recipe and used dried dill instead of fresh (1/3 amount, per YouTube experts lol) and it really turned out fabulous

    Used dried parsley so it would be stronger and it turned out perfect after I added less cucumbers. Amazing and goes perfect with all the Greek staples and more,

    Hard for a beginner. Halve the recipe unless you want a vat of tzatziki.

    Makes a lot of sauce, but it tastes very fresh and everyone loved it. Very easy to make, will definitely do it again.

    great! i didn't add as much cucumber and didn't let it sit/wring out the moisture but it still turned out good.

    I liked this but my whole family HATED it. And they're the picky ones. They said it tasted just like yogurt with a "strange" taste. I don't know how to alter it to improve it--maybe far less yogurt, some milk and sour cream and more lemon?

    Not the most flavorful recipe I have tried- had to add seasoning to reach non-bland status - flat flavors and one dimensional taste
