Loved the dish. It was tangy and garlicky. The 1st time I added rotisserie chicken so it would be a stand alone meal. I am taking it (as is) to a cookout this weekend and can't wait to share the "award winning" and creative side with other Greek food lovers! Mmmmm!
This is a fabulous dish. I have been using Tzatziki sauce as a base for many of my recipes for many years now. It perks up macaroni salad and my ultimate famous Philly style gyro steak sandwiches served on Tandoori naan bread is a definite mmmmmmm moment.
Depending on your love of each ingredient you can add or lessen to taste. For instance I'm not biggest olive fan, still included in recipe bc quintessential Greek but didn't do quite so much. Also went heavier on the tzatziki
The reason I tried this recipe is that we love all the ingredients. But, the amount of Feta cheese was overwhelming. We couldn't taste the garlic unfortunately and it needed a lot more cucumber for the amount of everything else. I will definitely try again with adjustments.
This is a very good recipe. There is a good balance of flavors and the ingredients work well together. It includes traditional Greek ingredients such as Greek yogurt, garlic, feta cheese, and kalamata olives. If you don't like those things you probably won't like this recipe. Two of the reviewers have never made the recipe and one reviewer doesn't like the ingredients. If you have never made the recipe, your review is irrelevant. I would also dismiss a review by anyone who does not like the flavor of several main ingredients.
NOTE: Review based on recipe made as is. WAY too tangy for my taste. Unless you love the bitter tangy taste of Greek yogurt, I would not recommend without changes. The changes I would make are: plain yogurt instead of Greek, and no feta cheese (husband preference). I imagine that with the plain yogurt, the garlic could become overpowering but I welcomed it with the Greek yogurt which has such a strong flavor. I was hoping to mask it with the garlic. I could barely taste the dill so I would add much more- maybe 1/4 cup. A work in progress!
