You can also use Icelandic Skyr which is a thicker kind of yoghurt which means you don't have to drain the cucumber as much.
This came out very good! I cut the recipe by 3 since I only had one cup of whole fat Greek yogurt and 1 English cucumber (used half if the recipe). I definitely didn't need more salt since the cucumbers are salted while drying out. I was worried it would be too salty but drying the cucumbers with a paper towel wiped off some of the salt. I sliced the other half of the cucumber and plan on dipping them into the tzatziki sauce for a healthy snacks. Thanks for the great recipe!
Great Greek Yogurt Recipe. I made it and it was delicious. Regards and thanks again for share this.
Made this recipe for the first time today and totally LOVE it! I used the recommended greek cheese, and made sure to sweat the cucumbers. It turned out thick, rich and tasty, a staple in my recipe box for sure!!
My sauce came out watery and pretty bitter. Note to self for next time, make sure the cucumber is sweet and not bitter. Also the recipe does not mention this but use yogurt WITH FAT, that's super important and helps reduce the bitterness. I wish I had known before making mine. Also make sure to cut out all the seeds in the cucumbers and salt them well. The recipe will come out very watery, which is kind of gross.
This was an okay sauce. I've made other versions of tzatziki sauce that I liked better. This one came out a little thinner than I would have liked. I think it's because the recipe has you blend the cucumber and spices before adding to the yogurt. In previous recipes I've tried, you just dice the cucumber and add the seasonings to the yogurt instead of blending it all up to make a puree. I probably won't be making this recipe again.
Mmmmm.....turned out just right! Incredibly easy. I used dill and look forward to trying it with mint. I had to use a regular cucumber and just seeded it. I halved the recipe and it made a lot. Thanks for posting the recipe!
My husband would drink this stuff if I would let him. We put it on everything, burgers, veggies, and any Greek food, of course. If you don't have yogurt, sour cream works well, too!
Very good recipe. I used Fage 2% Greek yogurt. It's nice and thick. Also, using fresh mint and dill from the garden really makes a difference.
This is a delicious sauce that I use for multiple recipes, including as a topping to my quinoa burgers. The only change I made is to use 1 tsp less salt at the beginning because it can be overpowering.
