Well, I served the tzatziki with dill and mint and my friends loved it. They ate the whole dang thing. I was keeping a little aside for myself but they asked if there was any more and I had to bring it out. I have to admit that I will be buying GREEK yogurt from now on. Much better than any yogurt I've had yet.
I purchased this from Fresh and Easy and it's their own brand. I didn't get fat free or low fat but will try their low fat next time.

Thanks for all your help. It seems that the combination of dill and mint was, after all, a winner.

I agree with all of Archiduc's info, and if in a pinch and I cannot find fresh dill (or just don't have it on hand) I soak some dried dill in lemon juice and salt to really extract the flavor.
Archiduc...do you know any Askounes family?

I had pita chips, large dipping pretzels and warmed pita bread cut into triangles. They went for the pita bread. Me too.

By the way I made that blue cheese, apple, avocado sandwich thing with pita bread and not only did it taste terrific, but nothing fell out.

Do you cook your pita bread? Or do you use the pita pocket?

No Glorie, I didn't make my own pita bread. I bought a package of Greek pita from my local Fresh and Easy. Good stuff by the way. I just heated the pita and cut it into triangles.

When I made the sandwich I just stuffed everything into the pocket and put it under the broiler to warm the cheese. Wow,

Mmmm, pds - yes please! I know some people don't cook/warm their pita's. I was just curious how it was done, whether it was pan fried or deep fried or what

I make a mixture of
olive oil
salt
pepper
garlic salt
onion powder
and oregano
and brush it on the pita and then
fry it in the fry pan just until it browns and starts to "bubble" Flip and do the other side...
You can then dip it in mustard or "whatever sauce you like. Oh it's good!


Don't use too much olive oil..or it gets mushy!!
