ISO Tackimi sauce (cucumber & yogurt sauce)

Sorry for the terrible spelling of this sauce.

I need a TNT recipe for this cucumber sauce. I'm making lamb on Friday and want to offer it as a change of pace. Normally I would make a mint sauce but since it's summer I thought a cool creamy sauce would be more appropriate. All I know is it has cucumber, yogurt, and onions. I don't know what ratios or other herbs / spices to add.

Do you think you might mean Tzatziki? A Greek yoghurt, cucumber mix - often with onion and dill?

Tsatziki
2 cups plain yogurt (drained over night)
1 cup seeded and peeled cucumber, shredded or chopped fine ( I like the chunks)
1 clove garlic ( I always add extra but, it’s up to you)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon fresh dill or mint ( I use dill)
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Just mix it all together and you’re done.
Easy as pie!
Enjoy.

Thanks PDS. I really appreciate it. I really think the Tsatziki will be a better sauce for summer time. I'd still also offer a mint sauce as well.

As for sides I'm thinking about roasted veggies and pan fried corn with butter, garlic, and a hint of sharp cheddar cheese. Also, I'll be serving a cold Greek pasta salad.

Any other bright ideas???

How will you be cooking the lamb? Potatoes roasted in the lamb drippings are pretty dang delish!

I have 2 cuts. I have a 6 pound leg (upper half) that I plan on removing the bone, adding garlic, salt & pepper, and rosemary, tying up and turning on the rotisserie in the grill and maybe adding some wood chips for some smoke. The other cut is a 4 pound blade roast that I planned on dressing nearly the same way but pan roasting in my new outdoor oven.

I did plan on catching the drippings and using them to help roast the veggies. Nothing better than lamb fat. Yum!!!
