      8. Blend until smooth. Pour into a small mixing bowl.
      9. Strain the water out of the cucumber. Add the cucumber to the small mixing bowl with the coconut milk mixture. Stir well.
      10. Taste and adjust seasoning as desire. Place in serving bowl and sprinkle with paprika.
      11. Place falafel in a lettuce wrap with cherry tomatoes and red onion. Drizzle with tzaziki sauce and devour!
