Tzatziki Sauce

We had our own meatless Thursday the other night.   I made a friend's buffalo chick pea patties for dinner.  We served them flatbread with some tzatziki sauce on top.  It was a great dinner and it never hurts to go out of the box once in a while.

Tzatziki sauce is wonderful.  It's nice and cool and is pretty light.  It also helps with with my new love affair with greek yogurt.

Tzatziki Sauce:

1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, shredded, and squeezed dry in a kitchen towel
2 cups Plain 0% Greek Yogurt
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh or 1 tsp dried oregano

Mix all ingredients together in bowl.  Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
