the sequel of the mystical sauce

hi, it's me again! i'm still working on recreating the pizza i posted about a few days ago. most of you suggested tzatziki as a sauce, but i had my sister read the ingredients of a jar of this sauce to me, and it doesn't sound like the right thing.

16 oz plain lowfat yogurt
1/2 English (seedless) cucumber
1/1-2 teaspoons salt
1 to 2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint or dill plus additional sprigs
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

the sauce that's driving me crazy:
sour cream

yes, they of course don't write any amounts when they list the ingredients, and doesn't specify the actual spices. i do think i have the mix of spices to cook the seitan in though (black pepper, cumin, pepper, oregano, salt, onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne), so at least i've got some of it down. i'm at loss as what spices to put in the sauce... i can't for my life remember what's in it. i just remember the sourcreamish taste and the garlic. hm hm. maybe i should just put some black pepper and vinegar in there, as the tzatziki recipe suggests. or should i put some of the spices for the seitan in there instead and hope for the best? i'm leaning towards a little of both. what do you guys think?
