Step 1

Coarsely grate the cucumber into a dish – some folk peel it first but I don’t bother.

Step 2

Put into a sieve and squeeze with the back of a spoon as much water out as you can. Pop into a bowl.

Step 3

Add the yoghurt, garlic and chopped mint and season with the pepper.

Step 4

Mix well together and chill for as long as you are able to resist eating it!

Step 5

Before serving – grind over a little rock salt.
Eat with warm pitta bread, bread sticks or crusty bread.

Step 6

As they say in Greece – ...which I think, and hope, means ‘delicious’!
