"An easier faster and updated version of my tzatziki, perfect for use on gyros, shawarma, kebabs, souvlaki, and falafel sandwiches or small salads. If you use a towel instead of cheesecloth, don't use a terry cloth type but choose something with a flat weave. This also tastes best if it has time to sit, but I have used it in a hurry."
