cacit

1 English cucumber (or 4 small)
Coarse salt
2 garlic cloves
2 Tbs. minced fresh mint
1 cup Greek-style yogurt

Cut the cucumber into 1/2-inch dice, put in a stainless steal colander, and sprinkle with salt. Let the cucumbers drain for 1 to 2 hours, to remove excess liquid.

On a board, make a paste of the garlic with the salt. In a bowl, put the cucumbers, garlic, mint, and yogurt. Mix well and add salt to taste.
