I use wine vinegar & mint - no pepper & olive oil.

no yogurt?  i used the yogurt in tzaizki sauce to "chill out" something that otherwwise would have been too heavy or strong  ... like a contrast.  in this case a black bean burrito that got over spiced.

Yoghurt cheese & Greek Yoghurt are slightly different - less water in the cheese.  I make the yoghurt from straining regular youhurt if I want it to look like Greek.
