Recipe

This simple Greek dip makes a good start to a casual meal, served with a selection of cruditès.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber, peeled and coarsely grated
  • Salt
  • 1½ cups Greek yogurt
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed, or more to taste
  • 2 tbsp chopped dill or mint
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar

Directions

 1. Put the cucumber in a bowl, sprinkle with salt, and let stand for 30 minutes.

2. Rinse the cucumber well to remove the excess salt. A handful at a time, squeeze out the excess liquid, putting the cucumber in a bowl.
