Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place the grated cucumber in a mesh sieve over a bowl. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and gently toss together. Place a clean towel on top of the cucumbers, with a heavy can (or something similar) on top to weigh it down. Allow to sit for at least 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt, salt, olive oil, garlic, dill, and lemon juice together in a medium bowl.
  3. Place the cucumber in a clean kitchen towel and wring it out. Get it as dry as you can!
  4. Mix the grated cucumber into the yogurt mixture. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  5. Serve drizzled with more extra-virgin olive oil and garnished with fresh herbs if desired. Enjoy with pita bread, pita chips, and/or crudités, or as a spread on sandwiches or tacos.
