Nicely done there. Using a coffee filter would be easier to filter liquid out of yoghurt.

This is, by far, the single best Tzatziki ever made. Hands down. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is in words. You MUST make it yourself.

To whoever made this recipe: Thank you so much. For the longest time, I’ve searched for a tzatziki that would be full of rich textures and tones. This most definitely is it.

A coffee filter works well for draining extra liquid from yogurt or cucumbers.

Very nicely done. Exactly the way I make it except I’m crude and just use black pepper. This is an awesome companion to greek garlic/bread dip as my favorite dips/spreads/sauces.
