peel and seed the cucumber, dice it, place cubes in a piece of paper towel and squeeze out the excess water. This will help keep the dip from getting watery. This recipe is a good lowfat version. Sometimes mint is used instead of dill. Submitted by:

A good tip for cucumbers and tomatoes: Place in a strainer after cutting them and salt them. You'd be surprised how much liquid is drawn out! You can take regular non-fat yogurt, put it in a strainer lined with coffee filters over a bowl and back in the refridgerator. Next day you have greek yogurt! Submitted by:

I'll try the suggestions above to avoid the watery dip syndrome. Fresh dill rocks and the calories are soooo few. Love it Submitted by:

It may only be my computer, but for the quantities of dill weed, salt and pepper I couldn't see the numbers (I'm guessing they were fractions?). I'd love to make this dip, but what are the quantities of dill, salt and pepper? Submitted by:

Being Greek and having made tzatziki, my suggestion would be to peel and seed the cucumber, dice it, place cubes in a piece of paper towel and squeeze out the excess water. This will help keep the dip from getting watery. This recipe is a good lowfat version. Sometimes mint is used instead of dill. Submitted by:

I would use non fat Greek Yogurt - It has a thicker consistency (and I think better flavor). If you don't like the cucumber seeds use an english cucumber - seedless. Thanks for the recipe Submitted by:

NOTE for thicker consistency - slice, sprinkle salt, let sit (water will come out of the cucumbers), drain, pat dry then chopped the cucumbers. Also place Yogurt/Sour Cream in cheesecloth to drain some liquid at the same time. This will produce a thicker consistency. Submitted by:

This looks very similar to a dip I invented the other day, it's crazy! But I didn't put cucumber in mine, I'll have to try that sometime. I loved how it's so low in fat but is as yummy as those normal, high-fat ones. Submitted by:

It says: 1/2 cup dill, 1/2-3/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp white pepper.

Check the sodium on the yogurt, that may be the source of the sodium, otherwise. leave out the salt.
