Cucumber sauce for falafel -- keeps how long?

cucumber, seeded and chopped
The usual recipes have you chill it for 12-24 hours, but how long will it keep, do you think?
I love tzatziki on almost anything... falafel, gyros, souvlaki. I know that tahini is more traditional on falafel, but, I much prefer that lovely cucumber, yogurt and garlic flavor.
I actually made my own pita breads last night. OMG! Now that is a treat, and so very easy.
In response to Harter's water/cucumber statement, I shred half the cucumber and mince the other half, lightly salt and drain for 12 hrs. This really helps with reducing the water the exudes from the cucumber. I also drain the yogurt at the same time. This helps the consistency over a few days.
