    Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe is refreshing. It used a lot of yoghurt than I liked. So, I just used 6 ounces of yoghurt instead of 32 ounces. I also used 3 cucumbers instead of one just because I love eating them. Thanks for the recipe.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious, cool and easy to make. I added more cucumbers and less yoghurt but kept the seasonings the same and the dish was a hit.  -  29 Sep 2008


    a little less yoghurt would have been perfect. Love the taste.  -  29 Sep 2008
