“This sauce is wonderful to serve with falafel or other Greek, Indian, Russian or Armenian dishes. If you prefer a very rich and creamy cucumber sauce, substitute sour cream for the yogurt.”

I rated this recipe, but I had to adjust the ingredients according to what I had available. I also did not measure anything; I just went by how much I thought I wanted of each indredient and 'dumped it'. I had no mint, I did add red onions and pepper. Oh my, oh my...what a good dip! I am sitting here eating it with low-sodium wheat thins even now! :D

Easy, fresh and delicious. I had to use regular cucumbers as that's what I had and I did add just 1 tsp. fresh minced onion. Very nice with the mint. Thank you.
