SERVES: as many as you like! 
PREP TIME: 15 minutes
COOK TIME: 0 minutes


  • 500ml Greek yoghurt 
  • 1 clove garlic 
  • 1tbsp lemon juice
  • 5-7cm cucumber (julienne peeled and also some chopped into small pieces for variety)
  • olive oil 
  • salt and pepper 

1. Start with your yoghurt in a bowl and basically add as much or as little of each of the rest of the ingredients as you want to your taste.

The measurements here are very much as a guide, I very rarely measure mine and constantly keep adding, tasting and adjusting as I go along. Perhaps I should measure as my boyfriend reliably informs me some batches are better than others...!

I tend to use maximum one garlic clove otherwise it can be a bit overpowering, so add this very gradually.
