I made the dip but everyone felt it was too salty. Made a second batch with no salt, no sugar and just the yogurt, mint and a squeeze of lime juice and it was perfect for our tastes !

WAY TOO MUCH SALT. TERRIBLE! I would say - do not add salt or sugar, and add some lemon or lime juice.

Too salty.

Ugh!!! I wish I had read the reviews first before making this. Yes, WAY TOO SALTY!!!. As directed, it is inedible. I would like to make it without the salt, but I already used all my yogurt! Damn internet recipes. Oh well. I give it 2 stars because it clearly has potential.
