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.

Super yummy! I didn’t let the cucumbers dry out and it turned out fine

awesome recipe, added a tsp of honey

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!
J Lewis 29 Aug
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.
Lauren R. 23 Apr
Makes a lot of sauce, but it tastes very fresh and everyone loved it. Very easy to make, will definitely do it again.
Varga 17 Mar

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

loved how the direction guided me and my family loves eating this Tzatziki

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
