Tzaziki Sauce

This classic Greek accompaniment to grilled meats is typically used to top gyros or shishkabob. Amazingly good with lamb, beef, & pork but try chicken and fish as well. Also great with pita bread as an appetizer.

In a medium glass or ceramic bowl, gently combine yogurt, garlic, cucumber, and olive oil.
