I don’t know how old you but I am old enough to know this is not traditional. With the internet you don’t know what is traditional any more and what isn’t. I’ve seen many recipes using vinegar or lemon juice but I can assure you that I’ve been living in Greece for 34 years and not once have I been to a restaurant where tzatziki is served with any acid or dill. If you like adding vinegar and lemon juice why not add it. It’s the same as adding more or less garlic.

Comment on How to make real Greek Tzatziki or Talatouri by Domniki http://kopiaste.org/2007/11/how-to-make-real-greek-tzatziki/#comment-143112 Fri, 24 Apr 2015 18:29:36 +0000 http://kopiaste.org/?p=137#comment-143112 I agree with Dimitris. My parents are from different regions, I’ve been to Greece many times, and I don’t recall ever having tzatziki without an acid–either vinegar or lemon. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that without an acid to balance out the fat of the yogurt and oil, tzatziki would be “incorrect” or taste unbalanced or off. Mayonaise has an acidic component, as do salad dressing and another Greek favorite, taramasalata. Why would tzatziki be any different? There may be regional differences, and I know that dill is optional and the quantity of garlic variable by region (in Thessaloniki where my mother is from, they use lots of garlic in everything). But vinegar or lemon are traditional, correct and appropriate to the flavor of the dip.
