REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
I used 1/4 tsp black pepper as I was afraid it would be too much. It was a thin sauce, should I maybe have used greek yogurt which is thicker? Or maybe my cucumbers were too watery. It was too thin to be a dip and I was out of yogurt so I added some thick sour cream which made it easier to dip.
