  • 1 large English cucumber shredded or grated (approximately 1 cup packed)
  • 2 cups plain full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp olive oil good quality


  • Prepare the Cucumber - shred or grate your cucumber and transfer to the center of a cheesecloth or paper towels. Gather the cheesecloth at the center to make a little sack and squeeze as much liquid from the cucumber as possible (the amount released may surprise you).
  • Combine - Combine the cucumber, yogurt, fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, fresh dill, and salt and pepper, to taste, to a medium mixing bowl. Mix well to combine.
  • Serve - Drizzle with 1-2 teaspoons of good quality olive oil and serve chilled with your favorite crackers, vegetables, or grilled meat.
