2 (7 ounce) containers Greek yogurt, such as Fage Total
1 hothouse cucumber, unpeeled and seeded
¼ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
1½ teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the Toasted Pita Crisps
8 pita breads
Good olive oil

Place the yogurt in a medium bowl. Grate the cucumber on a box grater and squeeze the grated cucumber with your hand to remove some of the liquid. Add it to the yogurt along with the sour cream, lemon juice, vinegar, dill, garlic, salt and pepper and stir. Serve with toasted pita crisps.

For the Toasted Pita Crisps
Heat a gas grill or charcoal grill with coals. Brush the pita with olive oil and heat on both sides until toasted.
