Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • 1 (16 oz) carton plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 small cucumbers, peeled, seeded & diced small (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 medium garlic clove, peeled & minced
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill or mint
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Mix the yogurt and cucumber in a medium bowl.
  2. Stir in the garlic, dill or mint, olive oil, and vinegar to combine. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Refrigerate before serving or dive in right away.
  3. Serve garnished with dill and/or mint.


I left out the red wine vinegar in mine and it was amazing! I also chose to use non-fat Greek yogurt to keep the calories down.

I found this recipe in Great Food Starts Fresh by Chef Nathan Lyon.
