  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (or full fat sour cream)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (about 1 1/2 tablespoon)
  • 3/4 cup minced cucumber (1/2 English Cucumber, partially peeled (striped) *can use 23 mini cucumbers too! )
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/23/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoon dried dill (if using fresh make it 2 tablespoon fresh)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


  1. In a bowl add the yogurt (or sour cream), garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper, olive oil and dill. Mix to combine and set aside.
  2. Mince the cucumber into small pieces, add to the yogurt mixture and then stir. You can grate the cucumber if you wish but place it in a strainer first with a pinch of salt and press gently to release the liquid. Mix the grated cucumber into the yogurt mixture. Chill for at least 1 hour.
  3. To serve, give it a quick stir first. Store for up to 3 days in the fridge.
