HOW TO MAKE:
-Grate half of your cucumber into a bowl using a grater
TIP: Don’t just add the grated cucumber to your yoghurt. Cucumber contains a lot of water and by doing this you will make your dip watery. I put my grated cucumber into a sieve and with the back of a spoon press down on the cucumber and squeeze the juices out. Alternatively, you can put the cucumber into a clean tea towel and squeeze out the juice (just make sure you do it over the sink)
-Add the cucumber to the yoghurt and stir in to make sure you like the consistency. If you like it thick then add more cucumber
-Next, using a garlic crusher, crush one clove to the mix
-Sprinkle a healthy amount of dry mint (dry works much better than fresh mint) add more if you like your dip minty – and mix all together
-Squeeze half a lemon for added zest and mix together using a spoon
QUANTITY: I like to buy a 500g of fage Greek yogurt, I make my dip using approx half the pot, and a half to 3/4 of cucumber. Once I have made it I will keep it in a concealed lunchbox and stored in the fridge, it will last for days and really goes a long way. It goes really nicely with my FETA AND MINT COUS COUS WITH ROASTED VEG or have as a snack with some carrot sticks.
