Cucumber Gyro Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
As a greek american living in Greece just a few suggestions. Make sure you drain as much juice from the cucumber before mixing. Use then about a 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil in the mixture to smooth it out. In Greece no one uses mustard so that is up to taste of anyone. It is best if it sits about 8 hours in fridge and put a piece of loaf bread on top so it will soak up extra moisture from cucumber. Remove bread before serving.

I live in Greece and its hard to find sour cream so i use a certain type of yogurt and it comes out perfect. I also put just a little green onion finely chopped. It is great with pizza, greek cheese pies, and meats. Just a WONDERFUL all around dip. I do not dare not make it at parties and gatherings because people do get quite upset.

If i could give more stars I would. I live in Greece and everywhere i take the cake, it gets gobbled up and people want the recipe. I have been using this recipe for years. The only thing you can say i changed is that I use is extra virgin olive oil because of location and its PERFECT. Thank You Thank You for such a wonderful recipe.
