Main Ingredients

1 medium cucumber, seeded and peeled

2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

4 tablespoons cucumber melon white balsamic (if you don’t have this, use red wine vinegar)

3 garlic cloves, mashed

17 oz container plain greek yogurt; whole milk preferably

3 tablespoons extra-virgin, fruity greek olive oil

3 juice of one lemon (about tablespoons)

1Grate cucumber coarsely then put in a non-metal bowl with salt and allow to sit for 10 minutes to draw out the water.

2Move to a non-metal strainer (or a strainer lined with cheesecloth) and press hard a few times to squeeze out as much liquid as you can. It's important to remove as much water as you possibly can; keep at it!

4Put yogurt in a bowl and add garlic, olive oil, balsamic (or red wine vinegar), lemon juice, salt and pepper and dill. Stir to combine.
