Ingredients

  • 8

    oz fat free greek yogurt (I used Fage)

  • 1

    small cucumber, peeled and seeded (1 cup grated and drained)

  • 1

    clove garlic, crushed

  • 1

    tsp lemon juice

  • 1

    tbsp fresh dill, chopped

  • 1

    tbsp fresh chives, chopped

  • kosher salt and fresh pepper

Directions

Strain the yogurt using a metal strainer or a coffee filter for a few hours to remove as much liquid as possible. Set aside. Scoop seeds out of the cucumber with a small spoon. Place cucumber in a mini food processor or grate with a box cheese grater. Drain the liquid from the cucumber in a metal strainer and sprinkle with a little salt (this helps release the liquid). You may want to use the back of a spoon to help squeeze out any excess liquid. Combine strained cucumber, garlic, yogurt, salt, pepper, lemon juice, dill, chives and refrigerate for a few hours before serving. Makes about 2 cups. Store in refrigerator for about a week.
