"A colorful California version of this classic Greek sauce. Use on your favorite pita sandwich, gyro, falafel or as a fresh veggie dip. Also try it as a condiment for spicy Indian food and curries. Make it using yogurt in place of sour cream, or even without the sour cream for a great vegan alternative!"

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the avocado, garlic, lemon juice, sour cream and cucumber. Mash with a fork until smooth. If your avocado is not quite ripe enough, you may wish to use a food processor. Season with red pepper flakes, cilantro, mint, salt and pepper, and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

Great twist on guacamole! We served it with toasted whole wheat pitas and Greek Penne and Chicken (also from this site.) Superb!

I don't know what tzatziki sauce is supposed to taste like, but this recipe made an excellent salad dressing! I just threw everything together and blended it. Delicious!
