1 (32 ounce) container
dried dill weed
salt and black pepper to taste
cucumber - peeled, seeded, and chopped
Easy to make, really nice side dish for curries and other spicy food. I was surprised at how much my husband and I enjoyed it.
I thought it was too bland, but my mom seemed to like it (maybe because its healthy?) It may be that I didn't let it sit over night to infuse the flavors. I might try it again and do that, but I'll probably just look for another recipe.
this is such a delicous side to have! It can go with almost anything, but is especially good with rice! I absolutely adore it!
Delicious, cool and easy to make. I added more cucumbers and less yogurt but kept the seasonings the same and the dish was a hit.
This was perfect with our kababs and we made gyros with this. I shredded the cucumber with the small side of the cheese grater. I used greek yogurt, kosher salt and just a sprinkle or two of coarse ground black pepper. My son even said this is the best tzaiziki sauce so don't lose this recipe! (I can't spell it, you know the stuff I mean) I added about a half tsp of dried mint too since it was in the meat marinade. Thanks, we loved this!
a little less yogurt would have been perfect. Love the taste.
Beautiful! I used less yogurt like many reviews said, but I have to say that I enjoyed it right away (couldn't wait, it looked sooooo good) more than later. But it was still darn good a couple days later over some fresh greens. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
This was okay. I think it would taste better with mint instead of dill.
