1 English cucumber
2 tsp sea salt
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill, plus a sprig of dill for garnish
1 Tbsp chopped mint leaves
2 Tbsp Mint Olive Oil
1 1/2 cups Greek Yogurt
2 Tbsp Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
Peel the cucumber, slice it lengthwise, and scrape out the seeds. Grate it into a fine-mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth and set over a bowl.
Add the sea salt, toss well, and let drain at room temperature for at least 1 hour, or overnight in the fridge. Squeeze the cucumber really well to get out as much water as possible. (You can pop a weight on top of the cucumber if you'd like.)
Mince the garlic, then use a mortar and pestle to mash it to a fine paste.
Mix the dill and mint with the garlic, gently mashing them together.
Scoop this mixture into a mixing bowl. Add the drained cucumber and olive oil and mix to combine. Stir in the yogurt, balsamic, and lemon juice.
Season to taste with salt. Garnish with a sprig of dill before serving.
Serve with pita chips, crackers, sliced cucumbers, or use as a condiment!
(Note for leftovers: This will keep for 2 days in the fridge in an airtight container!)
And there you have it!
