    really enjoyed it. used low fat yoghurt and a lot less cucumber (are u.s. cucumbers a lot smaller?!). i added stuffed vineleaves to make it a bit of an occassion.

    Tzaziki sauce was abit too "cheesy" to our liking. Added a handful of fresh mint or dill if you prefer, to the sauce. Overall good recipe!

    Was I the only one who thought the recipe was a bit involved, as opposed to a simple meal? But the time and prep was worth it! Delicious recipe, it was perfect!
