    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. - 10/17/08

    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. - 10/17/08

    Will be trying the recipe with Greek Style Yogurt for a thicker version.

    Tzatziki is DELICIOUS on a bagel sandwich. Just use a plain, cheese, or sesame bagel, chicken or turkey, and the sauce for a delicious treat. - 8/11/09

    This is a good recipe. I like a bit more garlic in mine and add a squeeze of lime juice, but otherwise make mine pretty much the same...agree with the postings about draining the yogurt and cucumbers first. It helps the texture...great as a dip, gyro spread, salad dressing...you name it! - 10/17/08
