Ingredients½ large cucumber 200 ml plain yoghurt 1 small clove garlic, peeled 1 teaspoon dried mint 1½ teaspoons red wine vinegar
Method 1. Coarsely grate the cucumber into a sieve set up over a bowl. Add a few good pinches of salt, then use your hands to squeeze out as much water as you can. Pour the water away, then tip the cucumber into the empty bowl and add the yoghurt. 2. Pound the garlic in a pestle and mortar with a good pinch of salt until you have a paste, and spoon that into the bowl with the cucumber. Add the dried mint and red wine vinegar and mix really well. Adjust seasoning to taste.
