  • 1 cup (250 mL) plain yogurt
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded seedless cucumber squeezed dry
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

In small bowl, combine yogurt, cucumber, garlic and sugar. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill for 1 hour to blend flavours. Serve with souvlaki or grilled chicken sandwiches.

Variation:

For a thicker sauce, start with yogurt cheese : line a 6 inch (15 cm) strainer with a double layer of cheesecloth; place over bowl. Add 2 cups (500 mL) plain yogurt (with no gelatin or starch added) to strainer.

Cover and refrigerate 24 hours to drain. Discard whey liquid.

Makes about 1 ½ cup (325 mL).
