Personal Notes:
Neither me nor my mother are fond of cucumbers but love them in this, which can be a good way to use up extras you have around the house. It is a nice light sauce for the summer and can be used on a variety of things. I predominately use mine on falafel. The most important step in the recipe is probably the chilling, because this is how the flavors really come out. You can add other fresh herbs but these are the ones I enjoy best. Thyme could be a good addition.
