"Drain some low-fat yogurt overnight to make this yummy cucumber dressing. This is a delicious topping for grilled chicken or meat. It's also a great dip for veggies and pita chips. Added another clove of garlic ( werewolves in Florida). Eliminated the parsley and go a little bit heavier on the fresh dill."

Easy and delicious. I used Greek yogurt and didn't strain it. I chopped up the cucumber and put it in our metal coffee filter with a sprinkling of sea salt, let it sit for about 20 - 30 minutes, and then pressed out excess water by pressing my fist down into the filter until almost no more water could be seen dripping out of the filter.

This turned out excellent! I haven't made tzatziki before, looking forward to making this again! Don't forget the salt and pepper to taste.

This was delicious. I used Greek yogurt so I didn't need to strain the yogurt, only the shredded cucumber. I added just a pinch of mint at the end. This was also delicious on fish/shrimp tacos.
