Ingredients

  • 1 English cucumber
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt (I recommend Chobani)
  • 6 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt more or less as desired
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper optional

Instructions

  • Using a vegetable peeler, partially peel the cucumber so it's striped. Use a cheese grater to grate or shred the cucumber.
  • Strain the cucumber from all liquid by squeezing it over the sink inside good paper towels or a cheesecloth. You can also just use your hands (what I do), but it takes a little longer. Strain it as much as possible!
  • Combine the cucumbers and the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
