Nice tzatziki, but the yogurt to cucumber ratio seemed a bit off from any other tzatziki recipe I've tried. I doubled the amount of cucumber. Thank you.

I drastically reduced the proportions (to 2 servings) & served it with Greek-style turkey burgers Greek-Style Turkey Burgers. Great blend of flavors. Thanks!
