Excellent dip. I recommend sprinkling a little salt on the cucumber and draining it first. I used non-fat greek yogurt, made the rest pretty much as written. A friend who spent a year living in Greece said she loved it.
Avocado-Mint Tzatziki is cool and creamy and the perfect complement to grilled meats and vegetables. Our version has chopped avocado added. Serve Tzatziki on the side with warm pita bread triangles for dipping and as a condiment.
