Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I cut the recipe in half, reduced the amount of salt on the cucumber, and didn't peel it (I like the skin, it has more nutrients, and it adds nice color!). I had previously made a tzatziki sauce from a recipe I found on another website, and my husband thinks this one is 100 times better! Thank you! Submitted by:

If you are choosing non fat yoghurt please be aware that unless it is 2% fat or greater you are not absorbing the calcium. Submitted by:

Sounds delicious - but way too high in sodium for me! And cutting out the salt would ruin it. Submitted by:

This is almost as authentic as it gets. Having lived in Athens for 4 years I miss the good stuff and make it myself at least every spring. The only difference I see is in Greece they didn't have non-fat yogurt. Most American "Greek" restaurants- use sour cream and it just isn't the same. So good. Submitted by:

Excellent! I think I'll use a little less salt when salting the cucumbers next time. I also used my cuisinart instead of grating the cukes. Submitted by:

I got hooked on tzatziki while living in greece. This is very close to the original, sans the fat. I add some chopped onions and use it as a substitute for mayo in chicken salad. Soooo good. Submitted by:

I had to leave the salt out as I am on a sodium restricted diet, but even without the salt, it's very good. Even my tzatziki-hating 11-year old liked it. He asked for a pita and ate this straight out of the bowl. Good job! :) Submitted by:
