Notes
If you do not have greek yogurt on hand, then you can make your own by draining full fat yogurt in a metal strainer lined with cheese cloth, for a couple of hours in the refrigerator.
You can add a dash of lemon juice or vinegar if you like sour taste in the dip.
A tea spoon of parsley leaves can be used to garnish the tzatziki.
