You know, that yummy Youghurt based stuff on Gyro Sandwiches!!

I want some with cucumber slices...I can almost taste it.

Anyone have a good one?

Sefie:
I think you're talking about tzatziki?  I can't recall the exact proportions in the recipe I have, but it goes something like:

100mL greek yoghurt (kinda lumpy, non-flavoured stuff)
about 10cm grated cucumber
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp lemon juice

Mix all together, adding more yoghurt until you get the consistency you want.  This version's fairly garlicky, but I love garlic, so... :D

That sounds kind of like it, but I thought it had dill in it.

Am gonna have to try it.  THANK!

Here's my tzatziki... a bit of dill in it

1 pt plain yoghurt
  drain overnight in coffee filter or cloth in the refrigerator (or use lebne if you can find it)
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into fine dice
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 Tbsp fresh chopped or crushed dill (or mint, if it's going over lamb)
1 tsp wine vinegar or lemon juice (to taste, really)
1-2 tsp salt

Day 1: drain yoghurt
Day 2: chop cucumber, sprinkle with salt, set aside to drain for half an hour or so.
squeeze excess moisture out of cuke with towels.

Blend everything together and refrigerate... it's best if it melds for a day, but can be served immediately. 

Mikayla:
KKL, mine is like yours but with both dill and mint.  The mint adds an interesting flavor.

The other caution I would toss out is to really try to find Greek yogurt (places like World Market and Trader Joe's have it).  It doesn't work too well with regular yogurt unless you go through all that straining stuff - then it's ok.

Tzatziki rocks!
