Last night just wanted a refreshing dip to go with a glass or two of Pinot Grigio so made this. Easy and delightful and so much nicer than shop bought stuff,
1 small cucumber
300 ml Greek yoghurt
1 garlic clove crushed
1 tbsp of chopped fresh mint
Salt and pepper
Coarsely grate the cucumber into a dish – some folk peel it first but I don’t bother. Put into a sieve and squeeze with the back of a spoon as much water out as you can. Pop into a bowl.
Add the yoghurt, garlic and chopped mint and season with the pepper.
Mix well together and chill for as long as you are able to resist eating it!
Before serving – grind over a little rock salt.
Eat with warm pitta bread, bread sticks or crusty bread.
As they say in Greece – νόστιμα….which I think…and hope….means ‘delicious’!
