Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

tzatziki cucumber yogurt sauce for gyro falafel dressing or dip

This sauce is cool, refreshing, and easy to make.  It is traditionally called tzatziki sauce and is used in gyros, greek-style grilled meats and with falafel (check out that yummy dancing carrots recipe).  It can also be used for a salad dressing or as a veggie dip.

2 Tbsp finely chopped red onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 Tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped or 1 tsp dried dill weed

1 tsp sugar (optional)
