It’s been a while since I’ve posted any recipes, hasn’t it? Here’s one that Mr. Improbable and I have been more or less living on this summer. If you, too, find it hard to eat in hot weather, this is a good one for you. As usual, all amounts are subjective:
1 cup plain yogurt (we prefer Fage’s full-fat)
1 pressed garlic clove or about 1/2 tsp juice from a jar of minced garlic if you’re lazy like me
1 t olive oil
1 t lemon juice
Grate the cucumber into a bowl using a cheese grater (the finer the grater, the better). You can peel it or not; I usually get one of those long European cucumbers that come in their own special condoms (what is up with that?) and don’t peel it. If you get one that’s all waxed and all, peel it. (Okay, why are cucumbers either in a condom or waxed? I don’t even want to think about this.)
Squeeze excess cucumber juice out of shredded cucumber.
Mix all ingredients together. You can also add dill and black pepper if you like that.
This is great plain, with rice or potatoes, as a topping for salmon or a dip for vegetables.
