Cucumber Salad (Tzatziki)
Coarsely shred cucumber and gently squeeze by hand to remove excess liquid. Place the garlic on a cutting board, chop coarsely and sprinkle with salt. Work the salted garlic into a paste with the flat side of a chef's knife.Advertisement
Whisk together the garlic paste, yogurt and mint in a medium bowl. Stir in the shredded cucumber. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
