Tzatziki Sauce

This is a basic Greek sauce used for gyro/pita sandwiches. It also tastes great on fish or for a salad dressing.
  1. Peel and cut cucumbers in half and de-seed (unless using long skinny English cucumbers which are fine with peel and don't have big seeds). 
  2. Then shred and squeeze out excess water. Add salt and let sit for at least a half hour to keep getting the excess water out. Frequently squeeze and drain--or it will be runny.
  3. Then add sour cream/yogurt and a dash of garlic powder. I usually do about about 1 cucumber per cup (so 2 total). But more or less if fine. Add a dash or olive oil if desired.
  4. Optional to add dill at the end.
