Man that looks good. I haven't eaten good Tzatziki since I left Crete. I would use it on Gyro's with real Souvlaki, not what they use here.

Made some more, been a while :D

Used Oregano as added Herb, didnt have any dill except for that dip I made. This will make a good base so I will take some of that dill Dipp I made and add some of this a little later :)

You don't need a recipe.

 

Only ingredients.

 

Its yogurt.

 

Shredded cucumber. 

 

Garlic.

 

Sometimes dill.

 

Olive oil.

 

Sometimes lemon juice.

 

Just throw it.

 

Taste it.

 

But you already know this.

I understand the concept of tasting as you go but I was actually asking for the recipe (weights/measurements)  and process that dragonsfire followed.

Used 4L 2% milk, add Kefir culture (or use Yoghurt culture) leave for about three days till starts to separate (depends on how warm the room is).

Then drain over night.

add some Olive oil and lemon juice to make workable and add 1.5 Garlic bulbs Garlic crushed and some Oregano (.5 bulb if want mild garlic taste).

Shred two english cucumbers and let drain for a few hours, add to mix. Use Olive oil to regulate desired thickness.

Is it bad that I want to splotch gobs of that on flat bread and scarf it?
But then again I eat cheese and crackers and hot sauce for snacks about every other day.

That made my mouth water so much! I looove tzatziki. You do it right, DF. I would enjoy dunking a piping hot pita or naan in that, and scooping a generous dallop directly into my mouth. Then...repeat
