Add a little good quality olive oil or a squeeze of lemon juice to taste. As well as its usual use as a dip for pitta or veg, this makes a lovely, clean-flavoured salad dressing and is very good eaten with grilled lamb chops or chicken.

Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber, peeled & finely diced
  • 300ml Greek yoghurt
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped
  • Salt & pepper

  2. Mix with Greek yoghurt, garlic cloves, finely chopped mint and some salt and pepper.
  3. Serve as part of a mezze, with olives, hummus and flatbreads.
