      5 stars. DH and DD said this is good. Ditto to Katanashrp authentic and flavourful. I made ours on the BBQ. This recipe is a gem that should receive more reviews. I had some trouble with the garlic sauce becoming thickening but the taste was yummy!! I used extra virgin olive oil, Balkan yogurt, sea salt, to taste, freshly ground black pepper, to taste, canola oil to be soy free, Hellman's olive oil mayonnaise to be soy free, plus the rest of the ingredients. I would make this again and try the toum sauce again too it was that tasty.

      Very authentic and flavorful. The only change I would make is to reduce the oil by half in the Toum part of the recipe. Otherwise, it was perfect. Thank you.
