1/4-1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Stir together the yogurt, sour cream, vinegar, lemon juice, cucumber, green onion, garlic, feta cheese, oregano, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a bowl .Cover and chill before serving to allow flavors to meld (4-8 hours) Serve with grilled chicken or lamb (marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, fresh oregano and rosemary, salt and pepper), pita bread or fresh veggies.
