Garlic Cucumber Dip Recipe

Creamy and full of fresh cucumber flavor, this classic Greek dip is a great appetizer served with pita bread, crackers or vegetables. This dip is also a must-have accompaniment to marinated lamb chunks cooked on a skewer.—Lisa Stavropoulos, Stouffville, Ontario

"Wonderful taste! I used 1 1/2 tsp. dillweed. Also, I believe it was thicker than others I've tried because I used Greek style yogurt and all natural sour cream. I let the shredded cucumber sit (the length of a movie), poured out the liquid and then pressed out the rest of the liquid."
