Here is my version of the Greek Tzatziki sauce. I like to use a little more Greek yogurt than sour cream, fresh herbs like chives and mint and English cucumbers because I think they are a more flavor addition! In no time at all you can make yourself a pretty fancy set up with this dip if you are having unexpected company. I had expected company so I took a little extra time on my presentation and hope everyone enjoyed how it looked as much as it tasted! By dinner time the dip was almost all gone and everyone was full, so do not make too much of this dip if you are cooking up a large meal! Enjoy!

1 cup Greek yogurt
2/3 cup 2 tbsp sour cream
1 cup English cucumber (zebra stripped, chopped)
2 large garlic cloves (minced)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp Italian volcanic lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp Italian parsley
1 1/4 tsp fresh chives
1 1/2 tsp fresh baby dill
2 tsp fresh mint
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
coarse sea salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)

Whisk together ingredients in a medium bowl and chill until ready to use. Serve with pita chips, hard bread pieces or over gyros. Enjoy!
