Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki sauce {also known as cucumber salad} can technically be served as a dip or a salad but for me, I have always known it as the sauce that makes gyros.  It was an integral part of my gyro sliders.  The sauce adds a kick of creamy garlic to the wraps and the subtle yet refreshing burst from the cucumbers and the mint balances out the spice of the meat.  I followed the recipe from The All New All Purpose Joy of Cooking but it seems similar to other recipes that I have seen.
