    Great! Husband loved it! I made it and used dried dill( all I had) so I only used 1 tablespoonful and it came out great! We made chicken sandwiches on naan bread, delicious!

    Very good sauce. Made it just the way directed. Be careful with the cucumber, make sure you let it sit to pull the water or you will have runny sauce.

    The sauce had a wonderful texture, creamy and not runny but it was overly lemony for my taste. Next time will use half of the lemon called for. Overall I really enjoyed it. Served it with toasted Naan bread and grilled chicken tenders.

    This was amazing. I made it for a party and everyone commented on it. It looked like too much liquid, but after it sat for about 5 minutes it was perfect consistency. This will be my go-to tzatziki.

    Well. I loved the difference between dry dill and fresh dill. I made a bit less than the recipe. I should have recude to one garlic. But it tastes refreshing and super tasty.

    So easy to make, yet flavorful. I used cucumber and dill from my garden which added an enhanced level of freshness.

    Wonderful! Added a TBS of sour cream and about 2x as much lemon juice. flavors develop perfectly after 24 hours in the refrigerator.
