gyro white sauce [moved from Manhattan board]
Does anyone know what the white sauce is that is served on Halal stand gyros? I had always assumed that it was plain yogurt, but the other day I saw one of the stand owners shoveling mayonnaise into a squeeze bottle, and it made me think that my assumption was wrong. Yuck!

The sauce at my favorite gyro stand (alas, no longer in business) was made from yogurt, vinegar, dill, cucumber, and a touch of honey. They shared the recipe with me (or more accurately, the ingredients...they never really measured anything) and they let me watch them make it the week before they closed up shop.
It is very tasty stuff.
