So, this is one of my favorite side dishes or starters or dips, no matter how you use it it’s DELICIOUS!
You will need:
3-6 cloves of garlic (depending how much you like garlic! I usually use 4-5 cloves)
5 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of vinegar
Put the yogurt in a large bowl. Cut the cucumbers lengthwise, take a spoon and remove the seeds (the cucumbers now should look like little boats).
You grate the cucumbers with the peel and leave them to rest for 5 minutes. In the meantime pestle the garlic with the salt and add it to the yogurt. ΄Drain´ the liquids from the grated cucumber and add it to the yogurt and garlic with a tablespoon of vinegar. Make a well in the middle and poor the olive oil. Don’t mix, leave it to rest in the fridge for 2 hours and just before serving stir it.
Tip: You can also add dill (chopped).
This goes well with meat (specially chicken), tomato salad and french fries! It is perfect for hot summer days as the yogurt is very refreshing.
