1 cup grated cucumber
2 cups plain Greek yogurt
2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt


1. Set grated cucumber in a colander lined with paper towels and let excess water drain for 20 minutes. Lightly squeeze the cucumber to remove remaining moisture. Place in serving bowl.

2. Add yogurt, olive oil, cilantro, lime, garlic and salt and stir to combine. Set aside for 10 minutes so flavors can blend together. Taste and adjust salt & lime as desired.

3. Serve yogurt sauce immediately with grilled corn, grilled vegetables, bbq chicken or use as a light and tangy salad dressing.


– yogurt sauce will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
