This delicious Greek sauce is perfect for summer. It's light, fresh and has a bright zippy flavor. I serve it with my Turkey Burgers w/Spinach and Feta, with Greek Salad and/or grilled chicken. It's a household favorite.

Instructions
  1. Wash and peel the cucumbers - I often make this sauce when I have a bunch of cucumbers from the farmer's market. If you are using a regular cucumber, remove the seeds as well
  2. Grate the cucumbers - I love using this vintage Rapid grater from my mother's kitchen
  3. Place the grated cucumbers in a colander with a pinch of salt - let drain for at least 15 minutes and up to an hour
  4. Using a large spoon or your hands squeeze as much moisture out of the cucumbers as you can
  5. Press the 1 large or 2 small cloves of garlic or chop into a fine mince
  6. Measure your Greek yogurt - I love the Fage Greek yogurt found at most grocery stores and Costco. It tastes fabulous, is gluten free and has no fillers, starches or extra ingredients (The KilKenney Kitchen owl loves it too!)
  7. Place the 2 cups of yogurt in a large bowl and add the drained cucumbers
  8. Add the juice from the lemon, the pressed garlic and the 1/4 tsp of dried dill to the yogurt mixture
  9. Mix until well blended and drizzle with the 2 tsp of olive oil (if you use 2% or whole milk yogurt, skip the olive oil. I find the non fat yogurt needs a bit of fat to build the flavor) Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to a week
  10. Serve with Turkey Burgers w/Spinach & Feta (check the recipe index) or your favorite chicken, beef or fish
