Got Cukes? Try this healthy and tasty dip!

   

Greek Cucumber Dip

2 cups thick plain yogurt (try Greek yogurt)

1 cup cucumber, peeled, seeded* and chopped finely

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 Tablespoon fresh dill

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

To thicken yogurt (if you cannot find the Greek yogurt), line a sieve with cheesecloth. Place sieve over a big bowl. Pour yogurt in sieve and drain yogurt (about 2 hours).

Sprinkle salt over chopped cucumber. Let stand 15 minutes & press dry. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl mixing well. Chill.

Serve with cut vegetables. Would also be delicious with lamb burgers!

Makes 3 cups.

* to seed the cucumbers: peel outer skin, cut in half lengthwise, use a spoon to scrape the seeds out (these will add too much moisture to the dip).
