I'm Greek and my husband's Sicilian, so we use plenty of garlic in our cooking. We typically serve this traditional Tzatziki with lamb and chicken.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 12, 2009

Great sauce for falafel. I cut the recipe in 1/2 because I didn't need so much sauce. I still used the full cucumber and cut the rest of the ingredients in half. Turned out great!
