Pretty good very tasty ! Will be great on the baked salmon

i made a half portion. it was easy to prepare and tasted great.
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.

it was so good. i would definitely make 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
