This recipe sounds interesting, I must try it and write my comments afterwards.
Tzatziki sauce, however, is made of yogurt, grated cucumber, salt, white pepper, vinegar, olive oil, finely chopped or crushed garlic and finely chopped dill or spearmint to give it it's aroma. Never use shallots or onions in traditional greek tzatziki !


I make two batches at a time and freeze the latkes for a quick weeknight meal. These are really tasty and a great way to use all that zucchini.


Easy to make. Very tasty. My husband was taken with it as well.

Very labor intensive took a long time to prepare. The biggest problem is the amount of liquid in the finished product so things starting falling apart. It would be best if the zucchini is shredded then drained because the latke's are way to loose. Flavor was excellent.
