Mediterranean Cucumber and Yogurt Salad

Recipe Ingredients for Yogurt1

1 cucumber (European or 3 Persian cucumbers, finely chopped or grated)
1 Salt
2 cups yogurt (drained)
2 garlic cloves, cut in half, green shoots removed, and mashed to a paste in a mortar and pestle with 1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint (more to taste)
1 Freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (optional)

Recipe Directions for Yogurt1

  1. 1. Toss the cucumber with a generous amount of salt and leave in a colander in the sink to wilt for 15 to 30 minutes. Rinse and drain on paper towels.

  2. 2. Beat together the yogurt, garlic, mint and olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the cucumbers. Adjust seasonings and serve.

  3. To serve as a soup, place a couple of ice cubes in each of four to six bowls. If you wish, thin out the cucumber-yogurt mixture with a little water. Spoon into the bowls.

  4. Variations:

  5. Substitute dill for the mint

  6. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts, and stir in with the other ingredients. Substitute 1 tablespoon walnut oil for 1 tablespoon of the olive oil.

  7. Add 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or white wine vinegar

  8. Yield: Six servings

  9. Advance preparation: Don?t make this too far ahead, as the cucumber continues to release water into the salad and the flavors and color will fade.
