1 cucumber

1 250gm tub ‘Total’ Greek Yoghurt (or similar )
1-2 cloves garlic – crushed
1 tab. Olive oil
A little salt

First of all, peel the cucumber. Generally in Greek cooking, cucumbers are not served with the skin. It is considered to be bitter and difficult to digest.
Next with a coarse grater, grate the cucumber into a colander. Sprinkle with a little salt and leave to one side for about 30 minutes.
