Homemade Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

tzatzikisauce_LWP_WEBThe first step in making homemade gyros is a great Tzatziki Sauce. My family just loves a good gyro but I have yet to even figure out exactly how to get the sauce right and without the sauce there is no gyro. At least that is what my husband told me the other day. So I made a quick call to my stepfather who spent years in culinary school and we stuck our heads together to come up with the perfect sauce. With the perfect blend of spices we compiled what we consider the perfect sauce!! Let me know what you think. Enjoy! 🙂
