This is a pretty common sauce, but since I’m making Falafel for Meatless Monday, it’s a requirement. A cucumber- yogurt sauce with a garlicky kick, it’s great on falafel, in a gyro, or as a side to roasted meats.


3 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced finely
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1 cup greek yogurt, strained
1 cup sour cream
1-2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and diced


  1. Peel, seed and dice the cucumber. A super easy way to seed a cucumber is to use a spoon and scrap the softer pulp from the middle.

  7. Add the olive oil mixture to the yogurt mixture and mix well
  8. Finally, add the cucumber


Creamy and cool with a little bite,  it’s the perfect foil for highly seasoned foods.
Until next time, Eat Well and Keep Digging.
