• 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh chile, minced
  • 2 cups whole milk yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil


Squeeze the grated cucumber with your hands to release as much water as possible. In a medium bowl, add the cucumber, garlic, chile, yogurt, lemon juice, and salt. Cover and place in refrigerator for at least thirty minutes. Taste to see if more salt is needed, then drizzle with olive oil and serve.
