Instant Tzatziki !!

Wonderful cucumber flavor. Combine a little of this with Greek non-fat yogurt and some good quality olive oil -- garlic optional -- and you have a super creamy EASY & FAST tzatziki sauce for meats, veggie dip, salad dressing, etc. Couldn't be happier. 4 stars rather than 5 because product should be packed with a dessicant pack because it was a little lumpy. (But I'd rather have it lumpy than have it contain anything unnatural.)
One of my Favorite Spices!

I thought I'd give this spice a try, and have been trying it on everything. Tastes sweeter than fresh cucumbers. I found I absolutely love this on yogurt! Amazing!
A Very Pleasant Surprise

This cucumber powder is a fantastic way to get that yummy cucumber taste into any recipe without having your recipe ruined with all the water in cucumbers.
My personal favorite use is Tzatziki sauce. Normally tzatziki takes massive time to dry the cucumbers and any leftovers are still a watery mess.
I decided to try the powder side by side with a real cucumber. I pulverized an English cucumber and drained it for several hours in cheesecloth - squeezing regularly. I was surprised that I ended up with only about 1/4 cup of cucumber fiber, but it was definitely very dry. Then I proceeded to make tzatziki. I used the same recipe with a second batch but instead of all the work, I used this cucumber powder. The final result: They were actually both good, but the one with the powder had more cucumber flavor, and obviously it was MUCH easier!
Now I add this powder to anything I can think of. It is great as an add in - not just in scratch recipes. It made a very interesting, good salad dressing when I added some to Marie's blue cheese salad dressing.
I imagine there are limitless uses for this powder. Buy it even if you don't have a use in mind. If you like cucumbers, I'm sure you will think of uses as you go along just like I did.
