How to make it:

  • Grate cucumber on large holes of grater (no need to peel). Squeeze out as much moisture as possible from grated cucumber and discard liquid.

  • Add yoghurt, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and optional herbs to a bowl. Mix well.

  • Take an additional paper towel and press over the top of cucumbers to remove additional moisture.
