• 1 large cucumber, peeled and seed and finely chopped or grated
  • 1 cup yogurt (or substitute as above)
  • fresh garlic to taste (1 or 2 cloves), minced
  • juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon
  • fresh dill to taste, finely chopped
  • salt & pepper


Place cucumber in a colander, add 1 tsp salt and toss well. Leave to drain for 1/2 hour, then rinse off salt and squeeze out as much water as possible. I roll it up in a tea towel and wring. If you like it very thick, you should also drain the yogurt in a coffee filter so some of the water drains out. Can do this overnight in the fridge.
