This is a simple Greek condiment that is cool and crisp and goes well with meat in the summer.
1 cup yogurt or sour cream (or combination)
1 small cucumber
1-2 cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp salt (plus more to taste)
1 bunch of fresh mint or dill
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
Prepare the cucumber by seeding and either grating or chopping the rest into small pieces.
Let the cucumber sit in a bowl with the salt on it for 10 minutes. Squeeze out the excess liquid and pour it off.
Combine the cucumber with the rest of the ingredients, chopping the herbs and crushing the garlic. Mix well. Add more salt and garlic if needed.
