What you'll need

  • 1 small English cucumber, peeled and seeded
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (preferably Greek-style)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (see tip below)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 small garlic clove, pressed (optional)
Helpful Tip:

Don't have kosher salt? Substitute table salt; just use half the recommended amount.

How to make it

  1. Use the large holes of a grater to shred the cucumber, then lightly squeeze the pieces to extract some of the liquid.

  2. In a small bowl, stir together the cucumber with the remaining ingredients.
