I'm Greek and I love this sauce-- I make it often. The only thing I do different is that I use lots more garlic which is my taste of course. Don't use the colander that some have suggested. I cut up my cucumbers in a food processer and then place them in a small bowl with 6 layers of paper towels over the bowl, invert the bowl and then the cucumbers drain into the paper towels. I also do the same thing with the yogurt--trust me it will work so no soupy sauce! Also, make sure you mix the olive oil well into the yogurt then mix them together with the cucumbers! If you have a garlic press, you will definitely need it with this recipe and if you don't have one--go buy one!!

great for gyros! most sysco locations will let you "cash and carry" meats from their office. I bought a box of gyro meat there, mmmmm just like the restaurants. be creative! I bought a pizza pie shell, added pizza cheese, slices of gyro, dolops of this sauce, baked it in the oven then put onion and lettuce on it when it came out of the oven. FANTASTIC!! just like the sandwich.. this sauce will be made in my home again and again and again!

I can see the need for draining the cucumbers so much, although I followed the steps my dip was still a little runny, I have since searched the topic and found a recipe that drained the yogurt first (in cheesecloth). I think I will try this next time, however the taste was fabulous, a little too garlicky for my kids, but my husband and I loved it. Thanks
