"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 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 taco...

This is always one of my favorite sauces...it's a make ahead for gyros tomorrow night.

Really good on gyros. I'll definitely make it again. I loved dill, so I tried this recipe over others that use mint. I didn't make any major changes: I used Turkish yogurt, and didn't drain i...
