- 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.
