    Ravenseyes's Note:

    This is a tradtional greek appetizer served with warm homemade pita bread or as a side to sandwiches - its thick and rich and tastes the best when you use the greek yogurt

      There are so many excellent tzatziki recipes on F.com, but I chose this one because it has such good reviews -- but no photo yet, so I took a pic for you. I did tweak a few things: I did not peel my English cucumber, grated it roughly, salted it, and left it in a sieve to drain for an hour. I definitely used more grated cucumber than the recipe asks for, and yes, I used Greek yoghurt -- so important! Do NOT use low-fat! I cut down on the garlic, as 6 Tblsp sound a bit over the top! LOL! With the fine cumin I also used some coarse black pepper, then left the mixture to develop its flavours. I love tzatziki! This was eaten as a cooling "side" to traditional roasted peri-peri chicken. Thanks!!
