Tzatziki Sauce for Gyros

Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 216 Posts
If you are a fan of Greek gyros, those wonderful sandwiches of thin sliced lamb, tomatoes, lettuce, and onions served in a pita bread, this is the sauce that goes on them - or my version of it which, of course, I think is the best one.


  • 1 cup thick plain yogurt (Greek yogurt is best here. You can use sour cream instead)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup peeled, minced cucumber, with excess juice squeezed out
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. finely minced onion
  • 2 Tbsp. finely minced fresh mint (or cilantro)


Mix all the ingredients and refrigerate for at least one hour.

A woman after my own heart, Barb! My Papa (grampa) came from Greece so I obviously love Greek foods! Will give your recipe a try using the mayonaisse but maybe you'll try the varient of using 1 1/2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 1 teaspoon of red wine vinegar instead of the mayonaisse and we can compare notes?


Always good to experiment :-) Thumbs up!
