A Greek dip with a pungent garlic flavor. Good served with hot pita bread triangles. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving to develop the flavor. If you prefer, use parsley in place of the mint.

The tip one of the reviewers stated on being watery had me grate and lightly salt the cucumbers before using. After 30 minutes wrap in a paper or regular towel and squeeze out the excess water. This worked really well - just remember not to add the salt as stated in the recipe after pre salting the cukes.

Where I live there is this delicious Greek restaurant that is famous for this dip. They serve it with hot pita bread and feta cheese and it is excellent. This stuff tasted just like it, took me ten minutes to throw together, and kids don't even realize that their eating cucumber, onion and garlic. I used parsley instead of mint. This is a keeper!

This is exactly like a recipe i've been using for years. There's no need to add oil like i read in other recipes. I changed it a little bit, i add 1/2 teaspoon dried dill and 1/2 teaspoon mustard. I also prefer to crush the garlic instead of using it chopped (don't like to find bits of garlic), and better wait till the cucumber is completely dry if you don't want your sauce to be runny. What i do is to grate the cucumber the day before and allow to drain in paper towels overnight. This is good for döner kebabs, sis kebabs, mashed potatoes, salads, as a veggie dip,.....
