This is the perfect accompaniment for Falafel (one of our absolute favorites!), Chicken Gyros or Veggie Gyros.  I personally love Tzatziki and also use it as a salad dressing or for raw veggies.  It's quick to throw together and can be made ahead.

Ingredients: 6-8oz non-fat greek yogurt
1 cucumber, cut lengthwise and seeded (peeling is optional)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
Salt and Pepper

1.  Place the yogurt in a fine mesh strainer and allow to drain for at least one hour to rid of any excess moisture.  Grate the cucumber or finely mince and also place in a fine mesh strainer or a paper towel-lined colander.  Sprinkle the cucumber with salt to drain any excess water - drain for at least one hour.

2.  Combine drained yogurt and cucumber, garlic, lemon juice, dill, chives and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.  Garnish with additional chives and dill if desired.

Bon Appetit!
