  3. For the Tzatziki combine the yogurt with the minced cucumber, minced garlic, lemon zest and juice, and dill in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.

Just wanted to tell you how much I loved this recipe.  I followed it, as directed, but just put it into a mason jar.  My family loved it!  So much, that my husband told me I needed to blog about it.  So I did. Smile
Thanks so much, it's rather hard sometimes to keep coming up with low carb, healthy options, so I appreciate your site very much!
