Why I Love This Recipe

While this sauce is fantastic with grlled meats (lamb especially!) it has many uses. Serve it with pita chips or veggies for a fresh dip, top salads with a heaping spoonful, or use it as a tangy spread for wraps.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pint plain yogurt (you may use low or non-fat yogurt)
1 large cucumber
1 clove garlic, diced
1 Tbls. fresh dill, chopped
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste


Drain yogurt by pouring it into cheescloth and resting it over a small bowl. If you don't have cheesecloth, you may place a coffee filter into a mesh strainer and rest this over the bowl. Refrigerate for a few hours.

Remove yogurt from refrigerator and pour off liquid. spoon yogurt into a mixing bowl. Slice cucumber lengthwise and remove seeds. Grate using a large grater and add to bowl. Add garlic, dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Blend and drizzle with a little oil.
