    You talking about the greek cucumber sauce or the thai cucumber sauce?

    I don't know the Thai, but it does taste really good.

    Greek Cucumber Sauce (Tzatziki Sauce):

    Mix 16 oz Greek style yogurt (you can use any plain yogurt, but the Greek is better, since its much thicker. If you have time, put the yogurt in a tea towel and suspend that over a bowl and let the whey drip out for about an hour) with a medium cucumber, seeded and finely chopped. Add a good pinch of salt, 4 cloves fine chopped garlic, 1 Tbsp olive oil, 2 tsp red wine vinegar, and if you have it, 5 or 6 fresh mint leaves, finely minced.

    Let this sit in the fridge for a few hours.

    I hope this is what you were looking for. If not, I'm sorry.

    1 small tub sour cream (1/2 cup)

    1 cup plain yogurt (Greek yogurt works best but not necessary)

    1 cucumber, mostly peeled and diced fine, some peel is OK, just fine dice

    1 bunch fresh mint, chopped

    1 clove galic, chopped

    1 T lemon juice

    Mix together and put in a coffee filter and strainer for about 2 hours until it thickens. Put in fridge, covered in saran wrap, lifted a bit so liquid drains from sauce.

    You've gotten good recipes already, but I do want to emphasize the will all work better if you use Greek yogurt.
