Not as tasty as the other recipes I have tried before. It lacks herbs and spices. Doesn't seen very authentic. Too much Yoghurt and not enough cucumber!

Wow. I added a touch more dill, garlic, and salt to my own taste, but what an awesom tzaziki this made. I love the idea of draining the yogurt. I served this with leftover leg of lamb that I cut into strips and stuffed in a pita My teenage son ate until he was nearly miserable. He ate it again for breakfast this morning. Thanks for posting.
