My husband loves gyros, but they are hard to find around here. So, he gets them made at home by me. I wish lamb hadn't gotten so pricey. But, it still good to splurge and make them once in a while. This is a great sauce. Try not to sub dried mint for fresh. Fresh makes a world of difference.

Seems like I've finally found the right sauce recipe for gyros. I like gyros for the manner presentation, and of course for its ingredients. But most of all I love the white sauce used when serving gyros and other Greek recipes. The white sauce looks very much like ranch but it tastes a bit different although close to it. This Tzatziki Sauce for Gyros is the perfect sauce, I guess, although I need to this and taste it for myself it this is indeed the gyros sauce I'm looking for.
