I love the sauce that is on a gyro. I wanted to make my own for a greek salad to use as a dressing and found this in a Gourmet magazine. It worked out great. Now I just need to figure out gyros so that I can have it on that. Cooking time is for the chilling it is not necessary but I like mine served cold.

I shredded the cucumber and then used cheesecloth to squeeze out the extra liquid. I also added 1/4 tsp garlic powder. Make sure you use Greek yogurt, it is thicker than regular yogurt.
