Tzatziki Sauce -Yogurt and Cucumber Dip

Recipe by  

"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."

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.

Flavorful and easy! Don't get angry, but I used Low Fat Cottage Cheese instead of Yogurt (because I had to use it up), whirled it in the food processor until completely smooth, drained my salted 'minced' cucumber well, then rinsed off the salt, and dried on a paper towel. I omitted the dill, but the garlic and lemon created the bite and tartness I was hoping for. Thx to jslingo for posting it.

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 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.
