Greek Cucumber Dip Recipe - As Seen on Your Day

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Greek Cucumber Dip

                This is great as a dip with pita crisps, topping a baked potato, lamb burger falafel or grilled salmon.

                You can use Greek style yogurt although it will make for a thinner dip, or you can strain your own yogurt by putting a coffee filter in a sieve and adding two pints regular yogurt  suspending it over a bowl and placing in the refrigerator overnight. Kefir cheese or labane is readily available at middle eastern markets.

Ingredients

1 pint Kefir cheese or Labane ( yogurt cheese )

2 or 3  cucumbers peeled seeded and shredded

6 to 12 cloves garlic crushed ( or as much as you like )

3 tlbs chopped fresh dill

1 tsp dried mint

1tsp salt

3 tsp sugar

Juice half a lemon

½ cp olive oil

 

Preparation

1st Squeeze the shredded cucumber to remove as much moisture as possible

2nd Combine All ingredients and refrigerate at least an hour to combine flavors
