Tsatsiki is a Greek meze or appetiser, also used as a sauce for souvlaki and gyros. Tzatziki is made of strained yogurt — in Greece and Turkey usually sheeps' milk or goats' milk yogurt — to which are added cucumbers (either pureed and strained or seeded and finely diced), garlic, salt, cracked black pepper and usually olive oil, dill, sometimes lime juice and parsley, or mint. Olive oil, olives, and herbs are often used as garnishes as well.
