After visiting Greece and eating lots of gyros I just had to make some tzatziki myself. This was a great recipe! The only thing I did differently was I used a food processor for all of the chopping and poured the excess liquid off so I would have a nice thick consistancy still. Thanks for a great recipe!

Yummy stuff! I would think it is called something else in Iran but this was delicious with an Persian meal. I used Balkan yogurt, English cucumber, purple onion, the optional freshly squeezed lemon juice, sea salt, freshly ground 4 pepper mix, fresh dill, plus the rest of the ingredients. Served with Chelo Kebab Iran sprinkled with sumac, charred onions, saffron buttered rice, doogh (minty yogurt drink), and salad for a delicious meal. I may make this again to serve with Iranian meat skewers. Made for Visiting Iran(Persia) in June 2012!

This perfectly complimented my gyros. The flavors were great with little preparation and short refrigeration time.

Not being one who had tried this before, we enjoyed it. It would be good on a salad or fish. We served it as a side dish with burgers. I used fat free yogurt and it worked fine. Thanks. Updated to add another star. We let this sit for 2 days in the fridge and it was fabulous at that point! I would make this ahead of time so that the flavors can meld. We served it with chicken and it was a great accompaniment. Yum.
