The dill sounds great I will have to try this - thanks bum. just quick question from a guy in the hills, what is "Jicama"

I like it with a 50/50 mix of sour cream and plain yogurt, quite a bit lighter.

Jicama is a root vegetable available in most grocery stores. It's used a lot in Latin cooking, and usually eaten raw. The best way I can describe it is the texture is sort of halfway between and apple and a potato. The flavor is pretty neutral leaning toward slightly sweet.
Grated, it would make a good substitute for cucumber in tzatziki as it would have a similar texture but none of the cucumber flavor.
