Ingredients

  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt full fat
  • 1 large cucumber roughly 2 cups grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • Grate a cucumber and lay it over paper towels to soak up the liquid. Squeeze over the sink or a bowl to get any excess liquid out.
  • In a bowl combine all of the ingredients. Stir together and let sit, covered, in the fridge for at least thirty minutes (overnight is best to have the flavors fully meld together). Remove from the fridge, taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.
  • Serve with veggies, ripped up pieces of pita, with chicken or lamb, or over rice.
