(Miami, Florida, US)

2 cups plain low fat yogurt
2 teaspoons pureed very fresh garlic
1 teaspoon salt
2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and grated on large holes of grater
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil
Fresh mint leaves, for garnish

Drain yogurt for 1 hour in a cheesecloth−lined strainer to remove some of its water.

In a bowl, combine the yogurt, garlic and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt over the grated cucumber and drain, 10 to 15 minutes, to extract excess water.

Add drained cucumber to yogurt, along with pepper, and mix well.

Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with mint leaves.
