Feel free to guess the ending of this old saying in the comments. : )

Sean and Amanda's Amazing Tsatsiki Sauce

1 medium cucumber, peeled and cubed
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1 quart plain yogurt
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tsp dried dill
1 tsp garlic powder (or two cloves fresh garlic)
salt to taste
lemon juice

Combine and let mellow for at least three hours before serving.


  1. Don't add salt to... your neighbor's beer.

  2. LOL--Cait that is so apt. For you. : )

  3. Don't add salt to Gordon's beer. :-)

    Don't add salt ... it's to small to count.

    Don't add salt... because if you do the chef will beat you.

  4. CORRECT ANSWER: "Don't add a boatload of saltfish."

    Good advice, good advice. Take it to heart, people.
