Tzatziki Sauce / Cucumber and Yogurt based Greek Sauce

I love cucumber in any format be it in raita or in pachadi or in pickles or in sandwich or just as plain. Its a very light veggie loaded with water and its a perfect coolant. Tzatziki is a famous Greek dip served along with their main course. I just love it and the addition of dill add more flavor to it.  I feel like dill has the flavor of fennel leaves but both are unique. I love dill and just add it in upma and variety rice. In Tamil its called Sada Kuppi but we have never used it in when I was in India. I started using dill only after coming to US. My two favorite things in a sauce it can’t go wrong right? Here is the simple Tzatziki sauce recipe. Its a no stove recipe.
