Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

Here is a rich, creamy, cool sauce that goes great with Zucchini Fritters or paired with your favorite raw veggies or pita wedges. Make it ahead of time so you can chill it in the fridge for at least an hour to let the flavors blend together. Simple and Delicious, this sauce has the flavors of a regional cuisine that you can easily make in your home.

If you’re like me I love, LOVE, trying new foods from around the world. This sauce reminded me of when I live in Toronto Canada, and had the opportunity to dine with some lovely folks from the middle east. Yogurt sauce is a common side dish with cuisine from this area. Toronto is quite the melting pot for culture. Or, as the locals say, it’s more of a stained-glass window :0)
