    I doubled the amount of garlic called for and would probably add more next time. The yogurt got weepy and I probably should have drained it with a coffee filter and a sieve before adding it to the rest of the recipe. I would also leave out the walnuts, as they really didn’t do anything for me. Now that I think about it, I’ll stick with my old recipe for tzatziki and just reduce the amount of olive oil in it!

    I will definately make this dip again. It did get pretty runny one day after it was made, though. I would definately recommend using this sauce if you are making gyros. It tastes exactly like the cucumber sauce used in gyros!
