recipe by So Delicious Kitchen
1⁄2 large cucumber (~1 C finely grated)
1 1⁄2 C So Delicious Unsweetened Plain yogurt alternative
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1⁄4 C finely chopped fresh dill
1 pinch salt and black pepper (plus more to taste)
1 1⁄2 Tbsp lemon juice
1-2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Finely grate cucumber with the skin on - should yield about 1 cup. Then either set in a fine-mesh strainer set over a small mixing bowl or transfer to a clean, thin towel and squeeze out excess moisture. The remaining amount should be about 1⁄4 cup.
- Add yogurt to a large mixing bowl and add strained cucumber, garlic, dill, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil. Stir to combine.
- Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more salt for overall flavor, garlic for zing, lemon for acidity, or dill for herbiness.
- Serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
