This is a meze that I always get when on holiday in Greece – this served with warm pitta before you get your gyros or souvlaki with Greek Salad and a pint of Mythos sat in the sun is simply heaven.
This is something I always make plenty of at BBQ’s to throw on the table for people to nibble on and always goes down a treat.
Is this the Greek version of the indian dish Raita…?
- 150g Greek Yogurt
- ½ Cucumber
- 2 Cloves of Garlic
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 tsp Lemon Juice
- 1 tsp Chopped Fresh Mint
- ½ tsp Salt
Cut the cucumber in half length ways and de-seed using a teaspoon and then grate into a sieve.
Sprinkle the salt over the cucumber and mix around - now place the sieve over a bowl to drain/draw out as much water out as possible. If you place a dish or bowl on top and wait 30 minutes, it should be long enough...
Finally mix all the ingredients together in a bowl then bring and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
