Yes it is delicious but not thick as it is mentioned in this video. By dicing the cucumber and adding salt you still get a watery tzatziki sauce. If you prefer a THICK sauce/dip you must grate and then squeeze in handfuls. Another thing is that the blender/food processor also makes the sauce watery, a whisk is preferable.

I would never do Olive oil in my Tzatziki sauce and I just stirr it with a spoon. To get the sauce a little thicker you just combine two tablespoon light sour cream with the Greek jogurt. I don't like junks in my Tzatziki so I also great the Cucumber and I let it drain for an hour or more. I think my Tzatziki has less calories. If you don' t have to watch out for calories you can also use the regular sour cream.

I love tzatziki, especially with falafel! I agree that this doesn't look like a very thick sauce. I like mine thick and chunky so I would probably skip the blender and mash my garlic to a paste and stir it all together.
