I also set the grated cucumber aside for a bit to drain some of the liquid off, this prevents the dip from becoming diluted. I also prefer the plain yogurt and sour cream combination.

I changed the recipe to 1 cup plain yogurt and 1 cup non-fat sour cream. As written, I thought the yogurt flavor was too overpowering. Also, I doubled the garlic.
