I love Gyros! Something different and ethnic. Traditionally made with Lamb, I found that sometimes it is not easy to find, so I have been making them with Chicken and they have turned out so good. With this yummy creation there is a wonderful Tzatziki Sauce that goes with it, called a Tzatziki Sauce made with Greek Yogurt, and Cucumbers. I have several recipes for this sauce that you could pretty much drink right out of the container, but this one has ingredients that most should have on hand. I have scaled this back to two servings and it does taste better the next day after sitting in the fridge, but can be served right away on gyros, as a dip for veggies, pitas or chips
