This refreshing cucumber yogurt dip can be served as part of the traditional Mezze, but it's also perfect as a sauce for poached salmon or other cold seafood. Be sure to look for Greek yogurt. It's thick, rich, and predrained. Plain yogurt can be substituted; see note below.

How to Make It

Step 1

Press grated cucumber between layers of paper towels to remove excess moisture. Stir together cucumber, yogurt, and remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate up to 5 days.

Step 2

Note: To drain plain yogurt, line a sieve with a double thickness of cheesecloth; set sieve over a bowl. Spoon yogurt into sieve, and let drain in refrigerator at least 3 hours.
