    Dari Donovan's Note:

    Given to me by my children's grandmother. Those of Greek heritage love this and so will you. This is great served with pita wedges or as a creamy dressing for gyros.

      This is the exact recipe that a Greek co-worker gave to me. She would bring this to office functions and it was a favourite with everyone. It is so delicious and so easy! I usually leave the yogurt out and just increase the sour cream and reduce the olive oil to 2 tbsp. I like to serve it with crunchy bread sticks and crackers. Thx for posting.

      This is sooooo delicious!! We used it with Recipe Baroness' Gyros Burgers #223847 and it was marvelous. I could not stop tearing off pieces of pita and dipping it into this wonderful stuff. Thanks Dari Donovan for a great recipe that we'll use again and again. :)
