So easy and so delicious!  The trick is finding actual Greek yogurt which is made from sheep milk.  Be sure to read your labels.  All of the “Greek Style” popular yogurts are really dressed up cow’s milk.  If you do not have a cow dairy free kitchen, any yogurt will do!


  • 1 English cucumber, grated
  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 to 2 cloves fresh garlic, grated
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves


Grate the cucumber. Place into a strainer or colander and season with a pinch of salt. Toss and let the cucumber drain  for 1 hour.

Combine the yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, mint and drained cucumber. Stir to combine, and season to your preference.

Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour so that the flavors can develop.  Serve on an old shoe!
