Drain some low-fat yogurt overnight to make this yummy cucumber dressing. This is a delicious topping for grilled chicken or meat. It's also a great dip for veggies and pita chips.

This is pretty good considering it has no sour cream and breaks down great nutritionally. I used plain Greek yogurt, so there was no need to drain as written in step #1, making this even easier. Only thing that I would change in the future is cutting back on the lemon juice. For us, it was just a little too much lemon flavor, but it did work well on gyros (another recipe on this site), and I definitely will make again.
