A traditional accompaniment to gyros and other Greek sandwiches, we enjoy tzatziki most with toasted fresh pita to dip into the sauce.
Yield 4 servings

1 cup chopped peeled cucumber, seeds removed
1 cup Greek yogurt (see note below)
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

1 Mix all ingredients by hand or in a food processor for a very smooth sauce. Can be made one day in advance.

notes Greek yogurt is very thick. If you are unable to find it, you can drain plain yogurt through several layers of cheesecloth (best done overnight).
