    This is not tzatziki, I would simply call it a cucumber dressing. The addition of a sweetener and salad dressing has no place in tzatziki. The use of chemical based products such as Splenda violates the normal clean nature of this dressing. - 5/6/11

  • Tzatziki is not made with sweeteners. I don't think I would ever make this version. I prefer the traditional recipe. I just use less. - 5/6/11
