Simple and delicious!
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt (I use whole milk yogurt. You could strain the yogurt. I skipped that step.)
1 cucumber, peeled and seeded
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon fresh chopped mint or dill (Actually, I prefer mint flavor over dill, kids like the dill and Kent doesn’t care!)
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1. Grate or dice the cucumbers. (I grated and then chopped) Wrap the diced/grated cucumber in a cheesecloth. Squeeze over the sink and try to get rid of as much liquid as possible. Cucumbers are very watery. ( If you don’t have cheesecloth, use a paper towel or thin dish towel.)
2. Add the cucumbers to the yogurt along with the rest of the ingredients.
3. Mix well and refrigerate 1-2 hours. This is a flavorful condiment for your falafel, duner or any sandwich. You could use as a salad dressing.
