I love tzatziki and I love trying new recipes. This one was exceptional with a delicious flavor. I have never added oil or vinegar in any other recipes and maybe that is what made this taste so good. I did cut the recipe in half though and opted out of the dill weed. When we had it I felt it needed a bit of salt and realized I forgot to put it in the mix the night before when I made it. It is amazing how much water is in a cucumber !! Yummy stuff Evelyn, will be making this one again. Made it to go with Dolmas-Grape Leaves Stuffed With Fragrant Rice and Keftedes ( Greek Meatballs) and Greek Antipasto and everything worked out fantastic. Thanks for sharing Evelyn..

This was very nice to use with dinner tonight (Di Neal's Shawarma recipe). I decided to do as chia did, and made two very small small batches of this, one using sour cream and one using thick yogurt...and I found that the yogurt was much more to my liking than the sour cream. :-) This was very tasty and I will make it again. I too enjoyed the addition of the vinegar, and I used dry dill, not fresh, as that was all I had on hand. Thanks for the recipe :-)

Excellent. I used lemon juice in place of vinegar & added crumbled feta. Served on gyros with sliced yellow & red bell pepppers. Thanks for sharing!

This was very good, and I'm sure it will be even better next time, when I actually follow the recipe. I made it with what I had on hand, so didn't have plain Greek yogurt or seedless/English cucumber. With regular yogurt, it was more of a sauce than a dip, but that was fine, since we were using it for chicken souvlaki pita sandwiches anyway. I do love Greek yogurt, so will plan on that for next time, and it is certainly easier to grate a seedless cuke. It's a hassle to seed a regular one. Thanks for the recipe!

Delicious, and incredibly easy! I reduced the olive oil to 1/4 cup, left out the salt and added the fresh dill. I really enjoyed the flavor from the fresh dill so I'll make sure I add it next time too. I used this as a dipping sauce for flipsides pretzel crackers

we love tzatziki with gyros, and your was very nice. i used fresh dill, and i can see this being great on poached salmon as well, since i use sour cream, dill and cucumbers for that, but i think this would be a bit more authentic with greek yogurt, which i also used-- i did 2 batches and preferd the one made with greek yogurt with the gyros but perhaps that is what i am accustomed to. i liked the addition of the vinegar, thanks ev

Excellent tzatziki. Very authentic. Great depth and complexity of flavor. Had it on greek salad and it was to die for.

I was hesitant by this recipe at first simply because I never made Tzatziki before! It was surprisingly easy to make and had an excellent authentic flavor.

This was fantastic! We have a local restaurant here in Virginia called Firefly Fare and I have been jealous of their tzatziki for a long time. I have never tried to make it one my own because it tastes so complex but this was so easy! I made it according to the recipe and I wouldn't change a thing. I used it on a pita sandwich for the first time with some veggies, feta, and marinated tofu. Amazing!

Delicious! I used Greek yoghurt and it's the first time I've used vinegar in a Tzatziki but it added a nice little extra tang.
