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. Read More

Just like the sauce served at our favorite restaurant. I prefer this sauce over similar recipes because it is made with sour cream instead of yogurt. I used English cucumber and fat free sour cream. It was divine. I want to eat it on everything. Read More

A I used one cup plain Greek yogurt 16 oz of lowfat sour cream (I accidently bought low fat) 2 single cloves of fresh garlic pressed one regular cucumber (de-seeded) half grated and half diced up tiny - we like the added texture and a couple dashes of garlic-salt... so it was sort of a double batch... LOVED this. I could and will make this 1000 times and eat it on everything. Thank you for your recipe. Read More

This is an excellent gyros dip very close to what I grew up eating in Cicero/Chicago. I added thin sliced onion to mine and it completed the taste for me. Read More

I liked the fact that I had everything on hand to make this but I really prefer the yogurt based gyro sauce. This is great in a pinch though! Read More
