  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and grated

  • 2 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • half of a lemon juice

  • salt, to taste

Directions:

  1. Peel and grate the cucumber and sprinkle a pinch of salt to it. Let it rest for about 10 minutes.

  2. Using a cheesecloth or a cloth napkin, spoon the grated cucumber into it and squeeze it to remove as much moisture as possible.

  4. Using a sharp knife, chop the fresh dill and then add it to the yogurt mixture. Stir until combined.
