Tzatziki Sauce

I wanted to make a batch of tzatiki sauce for some gyros I was making for dinner. I found an Ina Garten recipe that looked perfect. It took only a few minutes to make and turned out delicious. It was tangy, creamy, and flavorful – I loved the texture. This sauce is great for sandwiches and as a dip for pita chips or veggies and it tasted fantastic in the gyros I made for dinner.

Place the yogurt in a bowl. Grate the cucumber and squeeze the grated cucumber with your hand to remove some of the liquid. Add the cucumber pulp to the yogurt along with the sour cream, lemon juice and zest, vinegar, dill, garlic, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste; stir. Place into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to serving so flavors have time to mingle. Enjoy.
