  • 850 grams /1 lb + 14 oz full-fat and strained Greek yogurt
  • 320 grams / 11.3 oz (2,5 cups) coarsely hand-grated English cucumber
  • 2 teaspoons (about 15 grams) garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • teaspoon salt
  • ground pepper


  • Add the Greek yogurt to a large mixing bowl and work it with a hand whisk to become really smooth and creamy. Making sure there aren't any lumps in it.
  • Squeeze the grated cucumber with your hands to remove most of its water. Then add to the mixing bowl along with the Greek yogurt.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl as well and mix very well.
  • Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving for the garlic to cool down a bit. Or even better overnight. If you like raw garlic you can serve this dip right away, along with some pita bread or rustic artisan bread!
