General information

Cypriots enjoy a healthy diet. Everything is cooked fresh, daily and with an excellent quality. Try this delicious recipe: a refreshing yogurt, cucumber and mint dip.


Drain all liquid from the yogurt – alternatively you can use strained yogurt.

Peel and coarsely grate (or finely chop) the cucumbers. Put in a sieve and squeeze out as much of the water as possible.

Add the cucumber, dry mint, salt, olive oil and garlic to the yogurt and stir well.

Chill before serving.
