    I can’t wait to try this, tzatziki has always seemed so exotically delightful but beyond my reach of creation. Your post un-shrouds the mystique and maybe I CAN make it. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks so much for your feedback, Susan! Nothing beats homemade tzatziki sauce. You just have to be careful about going out in public afterwards – the garlic packs quite the punch! :)

    1 cup is 8 ounces. Is it 16 or 8?

      Hello! No, I’ve never had the need to drain it since I remove the seeds/inner membrane, which contain a lot of the water.
