I'm from Chicago and there are lots of gyro stands around. I never knew what was IN tsatsiki let alone how to make it. This sauce tastes and smells just like the ones I'm used to. It brings back lots of good memories. Definitely use Greek yogurt if you can. I found it at WalMart without much trouble. Now that I moved, I have to make my own gyros at home, and this recipe is tops.

Great recipe. I used greek yogurt also, so eliminated the straining step. We loved this recipe. I made gyros last night and wanted to make my own tzatziki sauce and this was great. Thank you Rita for another great recipe.

Another hit, Rita! I used Greek yogurt (no need to strain) and omitted the optionals. Perfection!

This is good. I didn't use the optionals. I would make this again.

I made this the lazy way and it was still yummy. Love the idea of adding mint.

Simple and easy. I made a smaller batch though and I like to add a little garlic and dill. Yummy with roasted chicken.

If you're looking for a great-tasting, easy tzatziki sauce, look no further! I have tried making tzatziki before using other recipes and I was always a bit disappointed. I wondered if it was possible to get an authentic tasting sauce at home. Then I tried this recipe and I knew I found the one! I used Greek yogurt instead of just regular plain yogurt, so I didn't feel the need to strain it. It was plenty thick. I also didn't add the mint--personal preference. We have used this on gyros, Greek burgers, Greek meatloaf, and other various things. We all love it. Thanks for the recipe, Rita!
