"This is like the garlic dip that many of our Greek friends make and use in their restaurants. Serve in a bowl and garnish with fresh mint leaves, parsley sprigs and olives."

This is a wonderful recipe! I made 1/2 of a recipe to go with gyros I was making and we had plenty. I started out with Greek yogurt which I think is slightly thicker than regular yogurt. I on...

This was pretty good, although I think vinegar was left out of the ingredients. It seems like there is a flavor missing.

I entertain frequently and this recipe was a big hit during our Olympic parties. Although time consuming, draining the yogurt really makes a difference.
