I am giving this five stars because of the pita chips. The yogurt dip was fine but nothing far from normal. I used organic English cucumber unseeded, organic unhomoginised yogurt but no sour cream as I have only found it with corn starch which we avoid, freshly squeezed organic lemon juice, home-made Greek seasoning, grey sea salt, a perfect salt, organic good quality olive oil in place of cooking spray, plus the rest of the ingredients. Served with Lentil Soup for People Who Thought They Hated Lentils! - Meat Op and a fresh organic salad. I would use this idea again.
I just made this recipe and it turned out great! I found it hard to season the dip just quite right but I was able to find a great balance. This is a great recipe to make for a summer bbq or get together as it's fresh, light, and healthy but most importantly, delicious!
This was great alongside sandwiches for lunch on Saturday. We dipped carrot sticks into it! Taking another reviewers suggestion I added a bit of dill! Thanks for posting! I am glad we have leftovers for lunches this week! :) [Made for Veg*n Swap March 2010]
